Congratulations to the 82 students who completed the “Pig Out on Books!” reading program this semester! A good time was had by all at the parties as “piggie” treats were eaten and free books were chosen. Also, watch for information being sent home sometime this month regarding the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library Summer Reading Program. Please remember to make reading a priority this summer with your children. A love of reading is a gift that lasts a lifetime!
Keep on Reading!
Jennifer Bush, Librarian
