Editor, the Advocate:
Thanks so much to the Victoria Public Library for its summer reading programs. The pictures from the Harry Potter party brought a smile to my face. What a great opportunity for young people in our community to be entertained and educated.
Parents, please take advantage of this treasure. For no charge, you and your children can have access to books, movies, music, magazines and so much more.
If you can't afford a vacation, check out a book, and let it take you to any far away place you choose. Every summer, I sponsor a reading contest for the kids who are supervised by Juvenile Services and access to the library means everyone has an equal chance to win. Victoria is very fortunate to have such a fabulous resource.
