Kids summer reading program well received

The Whitehall Library’s Summer Reading Program, “Dream Big, Read!” is in full swing.

Around two dozen children have registered for the program, which is held on Tuesdays throughout July.

Each week, children ages three to eight, enjoy a story hour, crafts and snacks. Kathi Ripley and Annette Parrott, who help run the program, said they are pleased with the enthusiasm the children have shown during visits to the library.

An ice cream and awards party will be held at the library at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 3. Children who plan to attend are asked to call Karen Gordon at 499-1366 by Monday, July 30, to RSVP. July 30 is also the date that all reading logs are to be returned to the library.
