On Saturday, June 15th, we held the award ceremony for our first essay contest. Newton 6th graders were asked why they think bookstores are important. The responses were many, diverse, entertaining, and encouraging to say the least.
The winners, Noah, Julia, and Abigail, each received gift certificates good toward anything in our store. In addition, their essays will be hung in our Young Readers Room this week for all to see.
Our staff, the writers and their families had a great time! Many asked if there would be more contests like this. Why yes, yes there will be more contest like this, so stay tuned :-)

Once again, great job to all who entered!
