This week the top 4 readers in the Wheeler Library's Summer Reading Club gathered to give their donation to the Orange Food Pantry. With the help of 78 other readers, they far surpassed the number of hours needed to earn the maximum pledged by the Friends of the Orange Libraries. A check for $300.00 from the Friends was presented to Sharon Pleasant. Added to that was $100.00 from Candy and Peter Cross in honor of the total 1,351 hours read by all the summer reading club participants.
