Summer Readers Built a Better World!

The Summer Reading Program kids were VERY busy this summer! They built birdhouses, wigglebots, rubberband racers, solar ovens, had the Catskill Puppet Theater, Aline Newman and her "N Character Program, painted butterflies, enjoyed Bells & Motley on the Erie Canal, and got to play around with Dig "N Push Excavating Equipment!  (Not to mention they were very busy trying to read 2000 books together as a team....) They were just short of their goal, so the kids received pies in the face at our Party at the Park.
