The summer reading program activities were postponed last week until today due to the heat. The children were set to take a walk to visit a nearby garden, plant flowers outdoors and have an interesting snack today.
At 10 a.m. Thursday, at this week’s week’s summer reading program, “Just DIG it!,” participants will enjoy reading, an activity or game, crafts and snacks.
Next week is the last week of the summer reading program for this year. Participants will pretend to be pirates and “DIG” for buried treasure.
Construction at the Stockport Library is coming along nicely, with three new windows and a new door installed.
During the next phase of construction that will be going on above the front door, patrons should enter and exit the library through the back door.
Book and movie returns can be put in the book drop next to the library.
