Summer Reading – Final Program

We will close the library on Friday, July 10, at 3:00 p.m. to prepare for the Summer Reading Final Program.  We will re-open at 5:30 p.m.

What a fun summer it’s been as we’ve celebrated Super Heroes.  We’ve found out that Superman and Wonder Woman aren’t the only ones that carry this title.  Super Heroes come in many forms:  doctors, teachers, soldiers, emergency workers, animals, and the list goes on.

We have had 70 youth and 15 adults complete the program this year.  We will have a list of these participants in a few days.  They are to be congratulated for working hard to accomplish their reading goals this summer!

Our final program will be on Friday, July 10, at 6:00 p.m.  The main program will feature a Living History presentation “Deborah Samson:  Soldier of the American Revolution.”  Deborah Samson disguised herself as a man in order to serve in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War.  She fought in several battles, was wounded and even treated her own wounds.  She will be portrayed by Anna Smith of Carbondale, Kansas.  Click here to find out more about the program:  http://www.historicperformance.com/samson.htm

The prize drawings will follow the program.  You must have finished the program and be present to win.  Refreshments will follow the prize drawings.
