Gold Booktrack badges and certificates were handed out to the latest two to read 100 books by Gill Spence, librarian in charge, last Wednesday.
Mollie Williams, seven, from Alexandria Road, Sidmouth, and Rebecca Lang, 12, from Whimple, have been on the scheme for more than a year.
Mollie's mum Karen said books by Roald Dahl and animal books were her daughter's favourite reads.
"I have always encouraged her to read and she still has a story at night time, then quite often reads to herself. She often has her nose in a book," she said.
Mrs Williams said Mollie was "over the moon" at finishing her Booktrack project and to add to her award was named 'star of the week' at her new school, St Nicholas Junior, receiving a pencil with head teacher award on it for her reading efforts.

Rebecca, who began reading her 100 books while at Rockbeare Primary, is now a student at The King's School, Ottery St Mary.
She said: "I enjoyed doing Booktrack because you could do it at your own pace and choose the books you wanted to read."
Her favourite authors are Anne Holt and Enid Blyton.
Rebecca, who said she would "just carry on reading", uses Sidmouth Library each weekend when she stays with her grandmother ready to get up early for synchronised swimming classes on Sundays.
Although she doesn't read sports books, unlike her younger brother who likes football magazines, Rebecca enjoys swimming and netball.
