November 2016: Outreach Newsletter

  1. 1. And the winner is...Westerville Public Library The Outreach N o v e m b e r / D e c e m b e r 2 0 1 6N e w s l e t t e r 7 8  Winners Announced  Manager’s Corner  Word Search  Upcoming Events  Staff Picks @Westerville Public Library: Outreach S o long 2016! It’s another year down, but before we move ahead, let’s take a look at our grand prize winners from the 2016 Summer Reading Program (Please note that these are individuals who contributed detailed reviews of materials they read, listened or watched over the summer). In third place we have Juanita Foltz of Friendship Village of Columbus. Our runner up this year is Toni Shaffer of Columbus Colony. And, (cue drum roll) our grand prize winner for the “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read” program is May Harrell of Columbus Colony! All of our weekly prize winners this year will take home nifty gift bags containing products from our amazing local sponsors Raisin Rack, Friends of the Westerville Library, Roush Hardware, and Hoover Gardens. Congrats to all of our winners and thank you to all who participated. Written Review By May Harrell The Train to Chrystal City by Jan Jarboe Russell Glad, for someone put this book in my bag. Could not put this book down, for I was curious- US Government already apologized to Japanese people who were deported to Chrystal City– even paid $20,000 to these people but the US Govern- ment never apologized to German people? I don’t think it is fair! When our Armed Forces were captured as POW, they always told their captors that they should be treated fair according to the Geneva Convention. But, the US Government did not practice this nor concerned about the Japa- nese/German people who were forced to go to Crystal City. Boyee! This kind of politics/practice should be practiced as it is supposed to! Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to read it. Love it to death!
