On Wednesdays in June, the Sully Area Library came alive with the Tales and Tails summer reading program. Kids divided into two age groups, ages 2nd grade and younger and ages 3rd grade and above for the program activities.
“There were approximately 40 kids participating in the program,” said Librarian Jackie Aspelin.
Aspelin says that as part of the program, participants made lots of animal themed crafts, and there were animal giveaways. “Among the older kids, Parker Bakker won a big bear, and for the preschool to 2nd grade group, Will Minihan and James Ramler each won a bear.”
The program is designed to promote the library and to get kids to continue reading throughout the summer. “Thank you to all the helpers, parents and babysitters who pitched in,” said Aspelin. “It was a fun time!”
