Williams Student Wins Kindle Fire in Library Contest

Joseph LaGrande of Williams was all smiles on January 29, 2013, when he received his new Kindle Fire in the Colusa County Library’s “Try and win a Kindle Fire” contest. The contest was used as a way to promote usage of the program, which offers live help from professional tutors, for students from kindergarten through college. The program features one-to-one tutoring and homework solutions to help students with math homework, science concepts, writing, reading, social studies, and more. “Our objective in holding the contest was to introduce more county students to the marvelous, and free, help that is available to them through,” said Colusa County Library Director Wendy Burke. “All that students need to access the free service is a library card and an Internet connection. The program also works with mobile devices.”

The contest ran from December 12, 2012 through January 31, 2013. The winner’s name was drawn by someone from outside of the library on February 1st, and Joseph and his family were notified the same day. ‚ÄúJoseph always wants to use his grandfather’s Kindle Fire,” stated Joseph’s mother, “Now he has his own, which is wonderful.” Joseph used to work on writing numbers in a series. He is a kindergarten student at Williams Elementary School
