The Read Out was a success! Thanks to everyone who participated. A special thanks to Ronnie Cooper who made the trip up from Florida to read from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Eloise Gowder, former Head Librarian at BCLS. I was inspired by all the readers and have begun to re-read some of the titles and introduce myself to titles not previously read. Take the challenge. Read.
