Last year the event raised more than $31,000 for the library. With proceeds from the 2012 event, the Friends of the Library Foundation provided support for the summer reading program, sponsored children's authors at the WV Book Festival and purchased Summer Library Club t-shirts for nearly 2,000 children who completed the reading program.

For more information, contact Terry Wooten, at 304-343-4646, ext. 287.
