Jefferson library celebrates program

JEFFERSON — Six weeks of fun and learning recently ended with a party at Henderson Memorial Public Library.

Children had the opportunity to pick a prize and enjoy a variety of refreshments with their families after learning about their world in a variety of ways.

“It was over 150 (participants),” said Dee Culbertson, youth services librarian.

She said the students and library leaders did a variety of fun activities that stretched the children in new ways.

“Beneath the ground and Diggin in” was the summer theme that all lessons were built around,” she said.

Gardens fit the theme as did getting out of debt, Culbertson said. She said the staff even matched movies to the theme.

There was a story time once every week and at least two alternative programs (a week) available as well, she said.

“We did several reading nights,”Culbertson said. She said the students even got to paint with coffee during the summer program.

The program was not just for children. “Birth through adults,” Culbertson said of the program that encouraged all ages to curl up with a book.
