The Cedar Springs Public Library’s Read to Ride program was a big hit this year on Red Flannel Day, with 294 students turning in reading logs to earn tickets for two free carnival rides. Library Director Donna Clark was grateful to the Cedar Springs Public Schools and Creative Technologies Academy for helping to distribute the logs to students and making them aware of the program.
“It was so worthwhile and so gratifying to see the families come and pick up their tickets. I’m so delighted,” she said.
Each Red Flannel Day, the library partners with Elliots Amusements and the Red Flannel Festival on the Read to Ride program. Clark said that the program has now run for 5 years.
