Alaskan Summer Reading not hexed

In response to a prior story on Alaska’s statewide Summer Reading Program theme of Dragons, Dreams and Daring Deeds, Sue Sherif, School Library/Youth Services Coordinator for the Alaska State Library undertook an informal survey of libraries using this program.

Her results?

[I] received a small, mixed response. Not everyone reported enrollments down, and, except for one other person, the librarians reporting had had no comments from their patrons on the theme so I don’t think the reaction to the theme is widespread.

More proof that a single case does not prove a trend. Thanks to Sue for digging deeper into this story!
