Literacy Bell achievers

Jessamine County Public Library partnered with the Jessamine County courthouse, the Jessamine Early Learning Village and Jessamine County Judge-Executive David West to offer a celebration Oct. 27 for children who have recently read their first book independently. Participants rang the courthouse bell. The sound traveling through the community let everyone know these children are now readers. The children also wrote their names in JCPL’s Book of Names and received a special certificate celebrating this important achievement. Another celebration will take place in the fall, for those interested in participating. From left to right, front to back are: Roman Garcia, Cruz Valle, Jeremiah Coyote, Robert Garcia, Leo Thimons, Lenna Castro, Emery Hornbeak and Logan Gillum.  Not pictured is Amelia Tompkins.
