The West Newton Public Library's summer reading program has come to a close. It was held at the West Newton Lions Club field and 25 - 45 children came each week. Volunteers read the books and teachers from the school even gave up the day to come and share with the children. Each week's activity pertained to the theme "Come Fly with Me" and, using their imaginations, the children were able to fly. They also engaged in a physical activity and, of course, had a treat, which was provided by the West Newton Library and Gary Johnson - delicious! The West Newton Public Library Board and volunteers want to thank all who made this program a success and are looking forward to next summer.
In September, there will magic at the library, as we will be making "Elephant Toothpaste." Come and see for yourself the third Saturday in September beginning at 10 a.m.
West Newtown Library is located at 124 N. Water St., West Newton and can be reached at 724-872-8555.
