Saturday July 18th marked the end of our Summer reading program “Ready, Set, Read” for 2016. A picnic was held outside in the lot next to the library. Hot dogs, chips, snow cones, and ice cream were given to each child and their family that completed the program. After the picnic the children were led upstairs where donated prizes were raffled off. Thank you so much to the parents, children, volunteers, and donators who helped make this year’s summer reading program a success. A very special thanks goes out to Monessen’s Redevelopment Authority for the use of the lot for our picnic. Keep reading and keep visiting us every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at the Monessen Children’s Library!
