Scandinavia PL's Summer Reading Program Raises Money to Protest Water Resources
Link to September 2 Waupaca Now article, "Scandinavia readers raise $207 for water causes".
Excerpt: As part of the Scandinavia Public Library's 2010 summer reading program, children were able to participate in the Read to Make a Difference fundraiser.
For each hour the children read, 75 cents was donated to Wisconsin organizations doing valuable and necessary work protecting our state's natural water resources.
This year 32 readers recorded 276 hours of reading in eight weeks.
