Young readers help ‘adopt a cheetah’
Milford Library’s first Young Adult Librarian Diana Preece challenged middle and high school students to read 40,000 minutes collectively during the summer vacation. The prize? A cheetah would be "adopted" through the World Wildlife Fund.
“We encouraged students to read any great book that interested them,” said Preece. “Over 60 students participated by logging the minutes they spent reading. We believe logging minutes, rather than the number of books read, was a more inclusive way for readers to participate.”
