Libraries Lure Young Summer Readers

With the theme "Dragon, Dreams and Daring Deeds," summer reading programs are invading libraries throughout the Wood River Valley. The Bellevue Public Library, above, celebrated the opening day of the summer reading program Wednesday, June 22. With the first reading activity, Librarian Patty Gilman enticed young readers and their families to take part in the six-week reading program every Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the library. "I want people to get passionate and interested in reading and in our library," Gilman said. The Hailey Library is offering the children's reading program from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays through July 13. The Community Library in Ketchum also offers kid's educational sessions. The programs include an all-ages arts and crafts activity Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon, a science time with Ann Christensen and a live animal guest Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., a story time Wednesdays 10 to 10:30 a.m., and an all-ages story time Saturdays at 10 a.m. Photo by David N.
