We Have a Winner

Link to April 29 Daily Union online article, "Palmyra's Powers Library wins 'Mock on the Rock'".

Excerpt: Many folks in Jefferson, Walworth and Rock counties love to read, but the folks - and there's just one kind of folks, as Scout said - reading the most are in Palmyra.

The Powers Memorial Library in that village has the award to prove it was recognized as the winner of the month-long "Mock on the Rock Big Read 2009" during a special ceremony at the Greenhill Center for the Arts on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus.

The event was part of the Big Read 2009 program, an initiative sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest
