Reading program begins
The annual Summer Reading Program has started at the Grand Coulee Library. The theme this summer for children and teens, chosen by a National Collaborative Summer Library Program committee, is “Dig into Reading”. Come in to enroll in the program and begin keeping track of the minutes read or those that have been read to you for our reading challenge. There are also a lot of fun activities and presentations planned this summer at the library. Every program is free to the public.
Fairy Gardens have been made with Gail Swagerty, painted/decorated wooden snakes as a craft and had the NCRL puppet show last Friday.
