Elicia Reads 100 Books Before Graduation

SRCL celebrates the first teen to complete this new program

Hi! My name is Elicia Snodgrass and I am a freshman in high school. I read because the authors I like share so much history and you can learn. My favorite book is probably Bendigo Shafter by Louis L'amour. I love this book because there is lots of history, it is not completely made up, and you can also learn many things by the struggles they had to overcome.  I am currently reading lots of books. I prefer old westerns, complete fantasy, or new westerns. My future dreams and goals are pretty simple. I want to stay on our family's ranch and help run it with my aunt. My hobbies are reading, working on 4-H projects, and working on the ranch. My parents' names are Amanda and Caleb Snodgrass.

To encourage a love of reading in teens, the Sidney-Richland County Library is promoting the 100 Books Before Graduation program. Research continually shows that children and teens who read for pleasure will do better academically and see improvement in their emotional health and well-being. And, of course, at the library we strive to introduce, nourish and grow a love of reading in the community that we serve.

Participants receive a prize when they read 10, 25, 50, and 75 books, and at the end of the program they earn a certificate and t-shirt for successful completion. This program is free to high-school-aged youth in Richland County. Stop by the library to sign up today!
