Franklin Again Closes Summer Reading Program

Julian Franklin entertained a crowd of about one hundred children and adults at the closing program of the library's 2007 Summer Reading Program on July 31. It was the sixth year in a row that Franklin brought his entertaining reading-oriented magic show to Columbus. This year, 131 children signed up for the program, 106 actually started, and 25 finished. While these numbers were lower than in previous years, the weekly storytime sessions drew many more people than ever before. Like last year, those who finished the program were given a work of art by Errol Rizzuto.
