The final day of the Summer Reading program at the Big Stone City Branch Library was full of fun and root beer floats. The 29 kids who participated recorded 297 hours of reading during the six-week program.
The finale was held on July 19 at the library with 24 of the 29 kids registered in attendance. Shayla and Colsen Folk won the Top Reader awards. They each logged 28 hours.
The Big Stone City Horizons Group provided root beer floats for all the kids and volunteers. The kids also received the book bucks they earned by reading and had the opportunity to pick out prizes in the library’s pop-up Toy Store. Books on friendship and summer were read aloud, and Diane Stewart taught the readers about Kids Yoga.
