One hundred and twelve Ann Arbor children made an imaginary trip to the moon this summer as members of the summer reading club sponsored by the children’s room of the Ann Arbor Public Library.

The number is nearly twice as large as the 65 who completed club requirements of reading 10 or more books during summer vacation last year.

This year’s theme was “By Spaceship to the Moon.” Each book read advanced a child’s paper spaceman toward the moon on a big bulletin board kept in the children’s room by Miss Hazel M. Keedle, children’s librarian.

Thirty-one of the 112 readers read more than 10 books. Topping the list is Susan Taylor, who read 59 books, one more than last year’s record.

IMAGE TEXT: Two public library visitors look over the big summer reading club bulletin board in the children’s room. They are Judy Ann Kruger (left), 3 ½, of 1030 Daniel St., and Monte Nagler, 15, of 1315 Beechwood Dr. This year’s club theme was “By Spaceship to the Moon.” Because a record number of 112 young readers made it to the “moon,” their spacemen overflowed it and are posted above Monte’s head. Neither visitor was a club member.
