The Future is Now with Libraries
“My mom says I started memorizing books at just 18 months old. I started reading in kindergarten. From then on, it seems like I have always had a book in my hand! With reading as my passion, I can get a lot of opportunities in life. Without all those trips to the library early in my life, I may not have reached so many goals in reading. As someone once told me, ‘First you learn to read, then you read to learn!’” (excerpt)
Adrianna Nader is a rising sixth grader at Sun Valley Middle School. She has had a love of reading since she was a toddler. She has spent lots of time at the library ever since she was two. Her mother took her to library story times and let her get all the books she wanted. Together, they spent many afternoons and bedtimes reading stacks of books. Years later, she still attends the library, getting as many books as she can carry.
Now, Adrianna is in AIG Reading and reads several grade levels above her grade. She was awarded several awards at her fifth grade graduation, including the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence. She was awarded the Terrific Kid award twice-once in Kindergarten and once in fifth grade. She also placed second in her school spelling bee this year.
Aside from reading, Adrianna excels in piano and coding. She loves animals, enjoys baking and has already shown an interest in business. She resides in Indian Trail with her mom, dad and lots of younger siblings.
