March 28, 2018
The wait is over! Unison Credit Union is excited to officially crown Brown County Library – Wrightstown Branch as the winner of the Unison Battle of the Books. The library selected the book A Wrinkle in Time, which received the most votes over two rounds of competition. The National Reading Month social media contest wrapped up with a special celebration at Unison’s Little Chute branch where Kathryn Gillette, a Brown County Library – Wrightstown Branch representative, was awarded with the $1,500 donation.
“We want to thank Unison so much for this donation,” said Gillette. “The gift will support literacy and learning in this community, helping people change their lives through reading. In such a digital world, it can be hard for libraries to compete, and we are forever grateful.”
“Unison is proud to crown Brown County Library – Wrightstown Branch the winner of the Unison Battle of the Books in honor of National Reading Month,” said Mark Hietpas, Unison Credit Union president and CEO. “We believe in the positive impact reading can have on someone’s life, and can’t express our appreciation for our local libraries enough.”
Throughout March, members of the public casted more than 800 votes for their favorite book in support of the libraries through the contest on Unison’s Facebook page.
