Booked for the Summer
Summer is a great time for taking trips to faraway places or having amazing adventures – especially if you can do it through the pages of a good book.
At the first of the summer, the Tremonton Library staff invited youngsters in the Bear River Valley to set a reading goal – whether is was a set amount of minutes are a certain number of books and spend the next two months going places, page by page. The library had 350 children sign up for the program.
On Saturday, the library held a Summer Reading Completion Party for the 50 who reported that they had accomplished their goals within the months of June and July.
With the help of volunteers from the Tremonton Women Civic League, youngsters had a chance to make dream catchers, decorate bookmarks, create wild monster puppets, frost and top cookies with all sorts of designs and even send off baking soda rockets.
Little Ella Mae Unsworth, 2, daughter of Kenny and Lisa Unsworth, puts a little color on her bookmark at Shuman Park.
Ready to create dream catchers are sisters Adilay, 5, and Averi, 6, daughters of Ruben and Keri Vantassell.
You can never have too much “stuff” on top of a cookie, and Abigail Hodson, 5, daughter of Josh and Megan Hodson, is making sure she has a little of everything on hers.
These brothers take a break from creating to eat the cookies they decorated. Picture from left are Zerin Campbell, 7, Justus Campbell, 4, and Ricky Campbell, 5, sons of Doug and Amy Ayotte.
Douglas Fletcher, 8, can’t wait to finish his rocket design so he can send it up into the atmosphere.
