West Sacramento Library receives ScholarShare prize

(Woodland, CA) – Yolo County’s Arthur F. Turner Community Library, located at 1212 Merkley Avenue in West Sacramento, has received a $500 matching prize from ScholarShare, California’s 529 College Savings Plan.

Last year, ScholarShare partnered with California public libraries to conduct drawings that gave participants, ages 18 and under, a chance to win $500 in the statewide Summer Reading Program. More than 790,000 Californians of all ages signed up at their local library for the summer reading program. Earlier this month, ScholarShare announced the 40 winners; one from each of California’s senatorial districts. ScholarShare also gave a matching $500 prize to each winner’s local library, which in the 6th Senatorial District, benefitted the Arthur F. Turner Community Library.
