A record number of young readers completed the Summer Reading Program, “A Universe of Stories”, at the Bear Lake County Library this summer. One hundred two children turned in their reading logs to show they had read for at least fifteen minutes a day for a total of ten hours during the month of June. Each Wednesday morning, children came to the library to learn interesting facts about our solar system. When asked who would like to go to Mars, quite a few raised their hand. On July 12th, Cecil the Magician entertained the young readers at the Allinger Theater, and on July 17th, the library provided an astronaut training party. The children pretended to walk on the moon, learned what astronauts eat on the International Space Station, donned gloves and goggles and performed shuttle repair in a tub of water, and worked as a team to refill the “Tang tank”. They wore a robotic sleeve to load cargo in a large cardboard space shuttle, made galaxy zipper-pulls, and decorated duct-taped rockets. With the help of Mick and Teresa Merritt, they launched their rockets sky high. Congratulations to the children listed below who finished the Summer Reading Program.
