Memorial students win "Yammy" library award
Posted on 11/14/2014

Memorial Elementary School won the McMinnville Public Library YAMMY award for the seventh consecutive year. 

Each summer, the Library has a reading contest involving approximately 18 schools throughout Yamhill County. Students log their reading times and turn these into the McMinnville Public Library throughout the summer.

Memorial had more than 60 students participate from Kindergarten through fifth grade. We believe there is a direct correlation between how many students participate in Summer Reading with how many classes from that school come to the library for a visit in the spring.

For the past eight years Memorial has brought all classes to the library for a visit. Memorial teaching staff made sure that all of the students from Memorial received a summer reading log when they visited last Spring.

Memorial had almost twice as many students finish this year than any other school. There was a 15 percent  increase in the number of students who finished this year compared to last year.
