Russellville library closes out summer reading program
July 27 was the last day of the Russellville Public Library summer reading program, Libraries Rock!
“I was very pleased with attendance and plan to really grow the program next year,” RPL Director Ashley Cummins said.
Barbie Briscoe from the Kids and Kin program came for the final program and helped the school-age children with arts and crafts. Children got to create their own jellyfish out of paper plates, colorful tissue paper and string.
That night summer reading program attendees celebrated with an awards day at the Russellville pool. A total of 62 children completed the summer reading program and received a certificate for a free meal from McDonald’s, courtesy of local McDonald’s owner Debbie Martin.
