The Grant County Public Library is excited to announce its 2017 summer reading program – “Build a Better World.”
The program is for children ages four years old (who have completed one year of preschool) all the way up through students who have completed eighth grade.
Sign up begins Wednesday, May 24. Those that register before June 1 will receive a special gift, according to library director Jody Carlson. “Do your part and Build a Better World by reading to strengthen your mind, learn how to reuse and recycle and build a better you, a better community and a better world,” added Carlson.
The first program is scheduled for Wednesday, June 7, with two sessions at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. featuring The Lego Guy. He has been doing exhibits and workshops throughout the Midwest for 10 years.
