Having to read books for an English grade can be a real challenge for some middle school students, but for Dr. Gina Stuart’s Advanced Reading Class, independent reading is second nature and these students love to read.  A well stated quote by class member Savannah Wallace describes her love of reading like this, “Books are amazing things that can give you thousands of new ideas.  I love to get into new books, live in the action, and become best friends with the characters.”

Each summer the Morgan County Library sponsors a reading club as an incentive to keep the mind sharp and the imagination active. Last Thursday, participants celebrated their commitment to reading with an end of the summer Pajama-Rama party. Each week throughout the summer, participants earned prizes by reading a specified number of pages. Kids and adults alike could choose weekly prizes including books, toys, and certificates to local businesses. To cap off the successful reading program, children wearing pajamas came for a morning event full of books, food and fun.

With the help of city employees a 4’ x 14’ montage trekked from the courthouse to its new home in the Morgan County Library.   The montage was hung at its new location on Saturday, June 23, in order to provide a safe place for more people to view.  After 14 years on display at the courthouse, the Morgan Historical Society decided to bring it a little closer to their home.  The montage is now hanging inside the library in the southeast corner outside of the historical society office.  The space provides the perfect area for the work to be appreciated.  Prominently hanging high on the wall, the montage is safe from any little hands that may pass by.
