"Hook, Line and Books," the Crosslake Area Library's summer reading program for children in grades one through six, attracted 33 participants in its first year.

The program provided an opportunity for each participant to read a wide variety of books to complete a FISHO card that made them eligible to win prizes and ice cream treats, and to be entered in the grand prize drawing. The program ran June 14-Aug. 13.

On Saturday, Aug. 14, Alden Hardwick drew the names of the two grand prize winners at the Crosslake Area Library. This year's winners were Mallory O'Brien (grades 1-3) and Rhys Gabrielson (grades 4-6).

This year's participants hooked lots of great books. The program will continue next year.
