Summer Reading Raffle Winner!

Summer Reading Winner Rediate KorsaWatha T. Daniel/Shaw Library extends big congratulations to Rediate Korsa, who won a Kindle Fire in our Summer Reading raffle. This year’s theme was “Dream Big, READ!”

Rediate (RED-e-ate), who is nine years old, attends Adams Elementary. Her favorite subject is fractions, and she counts James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl as one of her favorite books.

Rediate has also taken a stab at knitting while visiting the library over the summer. With her Kindle Fire, she can enjoy DC Public Library’s downloadable collection of books, audiobooks, video, and music to suit her interests.

She says that she will use her Kindle Fire for work and pleasure: "I like to read a lot and use the Internet when I do my homework.” The library, with its free Wi-Fi and free, online Homework Help, will provide the perfect setting.

“And I like to play games,” says Rediate. “Sally's Salon, Raging Thunder and Temple Run."

Let the games (and homework) begin! Have a wonderful school year, Rediate.
