Hagerstown Trust to help raise money for library

November 13, 2002

SMITHSBURG - Hagerstown Trust bank has launched a book-based initiative to help raise funds for a new branch library in Smithsburg.

During the Hagerstown Trust Challenge, the bank will donate $1 for every book up to 5,000 read through Dec. 31. Progress will be tracked with apples that will be placed upon a tree at the current library in Smithsburg.

Students in pre-kindergarten through grade 3 will get to place a leaf on the tree for reading five books and an apple on the tree for reading 10 books. Young children who read 10 books will also get a prize and a chance to win a new book bag.

Students in grades four through 12 can place an apple on the tree and earn a prize for reading five books.

All participants will receive certificates.

Sign ups for the challenge are at the Washington County Free Library and the branch library in Smithsburg.

The Smithsburg-area school with the greatest percentage of readers who complete the challenge will receive a computer from Hagerstown Trust.
