The summer reading program was wildly successful! The events on Wednesdays were very popular and each event was different. Thompson Zoo wrapped up the summer reading program, bringing with them some zoo residents, an owl, a ferrett, a turtle and a large salamander. Participants were given the opportunity to see and touch the critters!.
The Cooperative Extension and the Oswego County 4-H presented another great program. Many enjoyed the story of the Brooklyn Bridge and how it was completed after 14 years. It was followed by the activity and a snack!
The participants of the summer reading program continue to enjoy the events at the Parish Public Library. Linda from the Oswego County 4-H read the book "Olivia's Birds: Saving the Gulf." Everyone had the chance to clean up their own oil spill. The 4-H will continue for 3 more sessions, followed by Sue Fox, local EMT with the Parish Fire Department, talking about "Woods Smart." The finale will be the Thompson Park Zoo on August 26th. There will be animals from the Zoo at this presentation.
