Lincoln LaMastro, 8, and his sister Penny, 6, met their summer reading goals and joined close to 70 other children in celebrating during a pizza party in the Community Room of Easton Public Library Thursday evening.
"I read 81 books," Lincoln said.
"He was only supposed to read seven," Penny added.
Penny read 22 books, according to the children's mother, Kristine Oulman,
Lincoln enjoys reading books on Greek mythology and the Magic Tree House series.
"In the second grade he kicked into reading big time," Oulman said. "He started with the chapter books and he was always reading."
Lynn Zaffino, the Easton children's librarian, said close to 300 children participated in this summer's program.
"The reading party went well," Zaffino said while dishing out slices of cheese pizza to party guests. "This is the first year we've done a party to recognize kids reaching their goals. It has been well received."
The party featured a raffle prize for children who doubled their goal, a Bingo trivia game, a craft session and cake.
Easton Public Library has had a summer reading program since Zaffino can remember.
"It's very important so they don't lose their reading skills over the summer, and the good thing is they can read whatever they want."
Oulman, who said her family checks out around 80 books every two to three weeks, praised Easton library's summer reading program.
"It's great," she said. "It's nice that they offer this for the kids who worked and read. They were very excited to come."
