Summer reading program

”Dream Big: Read”, the children’s summer reading program at the Letcher County Public Libraries, will focus on books, stories, crafts, songs, games, puppet shows and prizes. The teens’ theme, which is “Own the Night”, involves movies, crafts, book discussions, games, quizzes and prizes. Adults will have book talks, discussions, quizzes and activities revolving around the theme “Between the Covers”.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m., June 7, with a play presented by Barn Lot Theater, a traveling theater troupe based in Edmonton. The subject of the three-part play, The Going to Bed Book; Llama, Llama Red Pajamas and Goodnight Train, is how getting ready for bed can be fun.
