"Congratulations! You are the proud owner of a library card!"


These words were said over and over on Saturday, as 64 GEAR UP students were part of the first of five groups to complete an orientation that earned them a library card.

Students received a tour of the library and participated in a scavenger hunt as well as an activity that was aimed at helping students find books to read at the proper reading level. After students completed both activities they were given a library card free of charge.

The library is one of GEAR UP's partners and as such has pledged to give a set amount of goods and/or time each year of the GEAR UP program.
By the end of April it is the hoped that all GEAR UP students will have completed the orientation and will be visiting the library and using their cards on their own time.
