Every year, LaRue County Public Library hosts a summer reading program. It is open to all children from preschool to 13 years old.
The goal of the program, according to Crystal Packard, youth service librarian, is to prevent “the summer slide” and to encourage kids to enjoy reading.
This year, the program is called “Fizz, Boom, Read!” and each week will have a different science theme. The group will meet at 11 a.m. every Tuesday for preschool, and 5 p.m. for school-age children.
