School may be out for the summer, but that does not mean it is time to pack away all the books just yet. In fact, the annual Summer Reading Program at the local libraries is just getting started and there are lots of fun performers lined up for each week. Both the Hightower Memorial Library and the Yatesville Public Library are hosting the Summer Reading Program which has a theme of “Fizz, Boom, Read” this year.


The Yatesville Public Library kicked off their program Tuesday with a performance by Magician Keith Karnok. The schedule for the rest of the Summer Reading Program performers is as follows: Thursday, June 5 will be Juggler Ron Anglin at 5:30 p.m.; Tuesday, June 10 will be Storyteller Carol Cain at 5 p.m.; Tuesday, June 17 will be a craft day where children can make and fly a paper airplane at 5 p.m.; Tuesday, June24 will be the Southeastern Reptile Rescue at 5 p.m. and Tuesday, July 8 will be the final program for the summer and is a craft day to make a wallet out of duct tape at 5 p.m.
