Colette Westing bike

Colette Westing, a second grader at Sunset Elementary School, Hermiston, stands with members of Hermiston Masonic Lodge No. 138 after they presented her with the bicycle she won earlier this month for participating in the annual Bikes for Books program, which the Masons sponsor.

HERMISTON — There are a fair number of Hermiston youths who are pedaling through their neighborhoods on new bicycles thanks to a program that also encouraged them to read.

Miranda Hunt, a librarian with the Hermiston School District, said the district partnered with the Hermiston Masonic Lodge No. 138 on the program. It is, she said, a partnership that has existed for several years.
