Dear Editor:

Woodville Public Library wrapped up its summer reading program, “A Discover of Stories,” celebrating the 200th birthday of Alabama on Wednesday, June 26.

Our library wishes to thank the individuals who did our programs: Jennifer Petty of Scottsboro-Jackson County Heritage Center, Ronnie Whitaker of Sons of the Confederate Veterans and UCAN Indian Tribe of Guntersville.

All were excellent programs pertaining to the history of previous years in Jackson County and Alabama.

The summer reading program was sponsored by two grants from Dollar General and the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.

T-shirts were provided for the children in the program with 51 signing up and 45 completing the program.

Certificates were provided by Pizza Hut (Kathy Rice), McDonald’s (Char-Charlotte and Ron Dutton of Guntersville), Hardee’s (Denise Drain Mashburn), Jack’s (Samantha Knight of Birmingham), Wendy’s (Bayne Million of Bowling Green, Kentucky), Walmart (gift certificate for drinks), Log Cabin and Parnell’s RV Park (Dawn Rogers, gift certificate for swimming) and Barnes and Noble (Valerie Gogan) for books and prizes for the children.

There were also private donations for prizes.

Our library wishes to thank all of our volunteers including Alyssa and Beverly Cosby, Kimberly, Shannon and Abel Hilliard, Amanda Pylant, Nicki Lowery, Melanie Geiger and Tommie Boykin.

Samantha Golden and Sheila Johnson, who directed our summer program, did a wonderful job. We hope to see you in 2020. The theme will be “Myths, Fantasy and Fairy Tales.” The slogan is “Imagine Your Story.”

—Karen Chambers
