During the last week in August, this year’s Summer Programs for children had their wind-up gathering, and the Literacy and Learning group was one of them. Librarian Linda Kelley noted that “we had 42 members, but not all of them attended regularly to complete all the requirements to receive a certificate and medal”. There were 12 children at the gathering, and all were excited and showing off their medals with pride, having achieved their goal and improved their reading skills during the summer holidays
As a fun closing to the last session, the children were paired off in teams of two who were challenged to find out who could build the tallest Lego tower in the allotted time. It was a close call, to pick a winning pair, but all of them had a good time playing the game.
