Jul. 26, 2014 @ 12:20 PM

Melati Free is Durham County Library’s fifth Reader of the Week. Melati is 10 years old and attends Pearsontown Year Round Elementary School. South Regional is her favorite library location, and her favorite book is “Isabelle” by Laurence Yep. Melati loves to dance just like her favorite character, Isabelle. She is even in a dance program at her church.

Each week during Summer Reading (June 14 – August 9) the library will highlight one exceptional student. Reading helps students retain academic gains over the long summer months, and reading is just plain fun, so the library encourages everyone to read every day. Children, teens and adults can earn prizes by reading, visiting the library, participating in programs and using online resources.
