Reading challenge to benefit fire district


St. Clairsville Public Library Director Doug Walsh announces the summer charity reading challenge will benefit the Cumberland Trail Fire District. Each time a child finishes a book, they may enter a ticket. The library donated items to the animal shelter last year based on the number of books read. Walsh said this year, if 100 books are read, the fire department will receive 25 smoke detectors from the library, and 100 more books read will mean a Touch a Truck event will be held behind the library. Another 25 smoke detectors will be donated if 100 more books are read. The goal is to have 500 books read. The fire district will then make a splash zone behind the library. The fire district gives the detectors to families in need of them. The library is grateful to Lowe’s for the donation of smoke detectors. The tickets will be counted July 21. The library is located at 108 Main St. Visit stclibrary.org to learn more.
