Summer Reading Program 2019

This summer's theme was all about Space!

 

  • The slogan was the same for all programs:  "A Universe of Stories"


  • Our program was called "Rocket into Reading!"


  • Space in 2019  celebrated the 50th anniversary  of the first man on the moon!

All age groups met Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am
