Reading right

The annual summer reading program, “Dig Into Reading,” will be held through July 27 at Windber Public Library,

1909 Graham Ave.

The program is open to children from preschool to grade 6 as of May, and the goal is to read as many books as possible during the free four-week program.  

Children will need cards from the library and must read books from the library’s collection.  

Only those books returned in person will be counted toward the goal.

Special programs held at 10:30 a.m. Fridays will feature digging, today; dinosaurs, July 12; and coal, July 19.  

There will be stories, educational talks and crafts along with prize drawings for those in attendance who earn tokens for each book read during the summer reading program.  

Registration is required, and forms may be picked up at the library.

Information: 467-4950.
