Lovington residents reach 750 book goal
by Florence Hallford
It was no trick that the community of Lovington managed to read 750 books last month, but on Saturday, that endeavor was in fact celebrated with a little bit of magic.
Area children gathered Saturday to celebrate reaching their goal of reading 750 books in February with magician Dan from Abra-Kid-Abra.
The children participating in the Community Reading Program kept track of their reading on bookmarks and presented them to library staff to receive a sticker for each book to keep count. Other patrons and adults participated as well and contributed to the final count that led the village to their goal. Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
