Blackwell Public Library halfway through summer fun

by Charles Gerian

The Blackwell Public Library’s summer reading program is coming to an end, but the fun is only beginning.

“Summer reading was such a blast,” Blackwell Public Library officials said in a joint statement released in their July newsletter.

“We had so much fun making crafts, having story and sensory time, and watching movies, and most importantly, everyone read so many books!”

This summer, the library will continue to host its summer feeding program, offering free lunches and snacks Monday through Friday from noon to 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Meals are available to children ages 18 and under. The meals must be eaten at the library, and the program will last until the day before

school resumes in August.

The library is also aiming to bring adult crafts in August and will host “Mad Science” experiments for kids.

In July, the library revealed a collection of new books, including titles from Danielle Steel, Nora Roberts, Heather Graham and John Grisham.
