What an enjoyable Party it was! The Library patrons who read 100 books in 2016, having accepted the 100 Book Challenge, converged upon Kent State Ashtabula to receive their T-Shirt or Tote Bag and partake of appetizers and 100 Book Challenge cake Tuesday April 12. Winners were greeted by Ohio Representative John Patterson, and treated to an inspiring talk by Sandra Philipson, author of the Max and Annie series of books.
