The Brainerd Public Library gives a huge thanks to our local businesses that supported the library's Summer Reading Program. We couldn't offer this free program without your help. Your donations of coupons, prizes and pizza were a great way to reward the kids for reading. To see the look on a child's face when they earned a prize for reading was so much fun. Your incentives kept them excited about reading throughout the summer. We had a record setting year, with over 960 children signing up to read! A big thank you to Applebees, Buffalo Wild Wings, Culver's , Dairy Queen, Famous Dave's, Hardees, Holiday Inn Express, McDonalds, Paul Bunyan Land, Pirates Cove, In Fisherman, Brainerd Lunkers, Comfort Suites, Brainerd Family YMCA, Mickey's, Taco John's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Wendy's, Cub Foods, Super One, Viking Coke, Pepsi of Brainerd, Pizza Hut, Rafferty's Pizza, Dominos Pizza, Giovanni's Pizza , Northwest Pizza, Papa John's Pizza, Pizza Ranch, Holiday on South 6th, Target and Walmart. Thanks for helping to encourage the children in our community to READ!
