Rockport Public Library recently completed its summer reading program for 2011. For the grand finale, members of the St. Paul’s Masonic Lodge were on hand for the second annual “Bikes for Books” award ceremony.

The lodge worked all year to raise money to buy bikes and helmets for this program. Each child who attended this event received a helmet.

Children who signed up for summer reading were given forms to fill out each time they completed a book. By the end of the summer reading program, almost 400 books were read. Ten bikes were awarded during the raffle.

The children who won bikes were Tessa Meil, Thor Gabrielsen, William Gardner, Gail and Greta Curtis, Sam Maltese, Eli and Charlotte Hood, Ava Tobias and Carter Goss.

St. Paul’s Masonic Lodge hopes to continue this program for next year’s summer reading program at the Rockport Public Library.
