The closing parties at each branch were bitter
sweet as it meant a wrapping up of the Summer Reading program. We read “Pete the Cat’s I Love My White Shoes,”
and played with a variety of toys, blocks, and puzzles. We also had a craft—mandoharps! You strum it similarly to a guitar but you
can hold it with one hand. It could be
said that the biggest hits of this party were the bubble machine and the water
beads because a majority of the kids could be found congregating in those
areas. See pics below!
