Summer Reading Program Keeps Books in Play

School is out but the Omaha Public Library wants to keep kids reading.

The W. Dale Clark main library branch kicked off its summer reading program Friday. There was a party with food, juggling, digging for fossils, and even sidewalk chalk art.

The library used the event as a fun way to get kids to sign-up for the summer reading program.

Youth Services Librarian Mary Mollner said, "They can learn the joy of reading just for the fun of reading, not for an assignment, not for a project, not for a classroom, but how they can travel in their minds, and explore different worlds, and learn about new things at their own pace."

All of the other library branches are having their own parties Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m.
