Library looking to 'Build a Better World' with reading

The library is getting ready to do its part to improve Craig and Moffat County through this year's summer reading program.

Parents may also read books to their little ones. Each Tuesday throughout the Summer Reading Program, events are at Mendota at 11 a.m. and Hayters Gap at 2 p.m. Wednesday programs are in Damascus at 11 a.m. and Glade Spring at 2 p.m.

The 2017 Summer Reading Challenge is designed for children, teens and adults to read independently and keep track of their reading goal.

Show Low Public Library has also partnered with Northern Arizona University, who will send professors in their astronomy department to facilitate workshops and discussions.

As part of the multi-state Collaborative Summer Reading Program, the library receives supporting materials through the Colorado State Library.

Those going into eighth grade or high school in the fall who enjoy working with kids can volunteer with the library this summer. The Summer Reading Program is an incentive-filled program that encourages the joy of reading and visiting the library.

"And when they've completed their 10 hours, they will receive prizes".

" Teen Crafts are held at the Glade Spring branch library Tuesdays at 3 p.m".

Whether you're a long-time participant or new to the program, you'll find great resources here at your library to help you create the best kid's summer reading experience ever!

But even with a change of plans, community members young and old flocked to the Emmet O'Neal Library for the annual event.
