The Perham Area Public Library’s Summer Reading program wrapped up Aug. 6 with a final book giveaway. More than 125 children participated in the two-month period of special events reading a total of 86,789 minutes during the months of June and July. The children pictured met the program’s goal of reading at least 600 minutes and were awarded a certificate and a free book. Those marked with a ** were the top readers for the summer, reading more than three times the program's goal.
