Participants in our summer reading program earned coupons to enter in our raffles by reading! Many hours were spent reading this summer.

The winners of our raffles were:

Rivers End Bookstore-- Will Alsworth

I-Tunes Gift Cards--Aspen Lindsey, Marissa Barber, Kate Alsworth


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 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.



Every Hero Has a Story! Let’s read them!
