The Kick-off party for the Mayor's Summer Reading Program was a great success! Festivities started with the African Drumming of Leo Hassan. He was joined by youths in the audience who happily played a variety of drums before enjoying refreshments. A Reading Fest followed. Summer Reading participants chose and read their favorite books from a special display.
Thanks to Jimmy Mullino, Store Manager of Elrod's Cost Plus Supermarkets, a $25 grocery certificate was a Prize Giveaway at the Kick-off party. Elrod's will sponsor FUN DAY AT THE LIBRARY in the back parking lot of the Pleasant Grove Branch on Tuesday, June 22, 2010, 11:30 am to 4:00 pm.
