My jungle mural is printed in the basement, prizes are bought, charts are run off, and information is ready to take over to the school - we are ready. For storytime I plan the stories and crafts myself, but our Summer Reading program is totally differ- ent. I start a year in advance getting ready. We plan on 100-kids and hire performers. I bet you would have no idea that it costs us an average of $400 each for these performers, but it's worth it... the kids love it. We are so grateful for the people that make donations so that we can have these great programs that keep our kids reading in the summer. Summer reading is for all ages so come and sign-up the 1't week in June and have a reading good time. Any questions, call the library 792-5919. Mt.
