1,145 Attend Finale, Star Elected Mascot!

Despite the rain, over 1,100 people turned out to enjoy the Plainfield Public Library District's Grand Finale event! "Read on the Wild Side" Summer Reading program ended with carnival games, inflatables, frozen custard sundaes, popcorn, snow cones and fun for the whole family. One patron remarked "Plainfield Library really knows how to treat its kids!" Hundreds of kids petted an alligator, got their faces painted, played games, enjoyed treats, and won prizes.

Over two dozen sponsors helped to make the program possible with donations of cash and prizes.

The Friends of the Library sponsored the election of a library mascot for the year. Star, a sweet brindle greyhound, won the election. Look for Star to attend library events throughout the year.

Thank you to our friends at PlainfieldTV for coming out to cover the event! Look for us on PlainfieldTV!
