Congratulations to the winners in the 2020 Haines School Library Tournament of the Readers. This year we had two divisions with 17 teams in grades 2-7. Sixty students competed in our double elimination book tournament. In the first division with students from grades 2-4, taking 1st place The Story Stealers: Anna Bell, Luke Bell and Jonah Wray and 1st place for the middle school division, The Awesomely Awkward League: Maddox Rogers, Willow Bryant, Kate Benda and Orion Carrington. Thank you to the Chilkat Valley News and ProHNS for your generous financial donations for cash prizes this year. I also would like to thank the families who support the annual Scholastic Book Fairs in the School Library. Funds from your purchases are used to purchase books and prizes for this event. Over 250 books were handed out to students as prizes. I couldn’t do this event without my friends Jeanne Kitayama, Teri Kanahele, Cheryl Stickler, Holly Davis, Shannon McPhetres and especially Karen Garcia; together we wrote nearly 500 questions. This event happens each year with their help. I appreciate their dedication to the young readers of Haines.

Leigh Horner, Haines School Librarian
