Lantana: Read for the Record


Mayor David Stewart presented a basket of children’s books to library director Kristine Kreidler in January after the town won first place in the Read for the Record event on Oct. 27 for municipalities under 20,000. Lantana has been part of the event for 12 years and been best in the county 10 times. Stewart said it’s been a personal goal of his as mayor to beat Palm Springs, which took the title the two years Lantana didn’t win. This year, volunteers read to 1,316 kids in Lantana. The book was ‘Thank You Omu’ by Oge Mora. Boynton Beach was the winner in the large city category. Photo provided
