IMAGINE Summer Reading 2020 

Although Grandview Library was not open this summer, with help from Save the Children and the Grandview School District, we gave our young readers the chance to earn free books.  Readers kept track of the books they read or listened to during the summer and recorded them in their logs. To claim your free books*, return your completed logs to the Library’s book drop located at the 2nd Street (south) entrance. Make sure your name and phone number are on each log. As soon as we are back to operating at full staff prizes will be handed out.

Even though the Summer Reading Program ended on August 31, keep READING, stay strong, and do not lose heart. Your prizes will be waiting for you! In addition, each completed log is one entry in the end of Summer Multiple Prize Drawing.

IMAGINE Summer Reading Program ends August 31. Questions? Call 882-7034.

We hope your Summer Reading has been awesome! Now is the time to gather your reading logs and return them in the book return

RuralHeritage

The Grandview Library Collection documents the founding and development of the city of Grandview, located in Washington State’s fertile Yakima Valley. Local tradition tells us that on a bright Indian summer morning in 1905, two men on horseback, Elza Dean and F.L. Pitman, pulled their mounts to a halt halfway between then new towns of Sunnyside and Prosser. They saw Snipes Mountain rising in the foreground, and the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier were outlined against the sky. “It’s a grand view!” Read more about our community in the Grandview Library Collection at Washington Rural Heritage a joint project of our library and the Washington State Library, Office of the Secretary of State.
