Library Director Rosella Tesch says there will be two free reading programs this year….Fizz, Boom, Read for preschoolers through 6th grade and Spark a Reaction teenage readers. A variety of activities including movies, guest speakers, and mini-workshops will be offered to both groups.

Tesch says 283 children participated in last summer’s reading program and she hopes to have at least that many again this year…adding that the goal is to encourage children to continue reading throughout the summer, leaving them better prepared for school to resume in August.
