Summer Library Program Gets Kids Ready to Read

(Gillette, Wyo.) There was a huge turnout this morning of Campbell County students who were at the library to meet Pete the Cat. The kids were also treated to a dramatic reading of an Amelia Bedelia book, and received their "On Your Mark, Get Set" program booklets to keep track of their reading progress throughout the summer. A second session with Pete the Cat is scheduled for 2:30 today, in case you missed this morning's kickoff. There's dancing and raffle prizes for all ages, and it's free for everyone. [image: radshit.jpg] "On Your Mark, Get Set...READ!" is running at both the Campbell County Public Library and Wright Branch Library through August, and encourages children to participate not just in reading, but sports and fitness activities. Kids 6th grade and younger can fill out their reading logs to win prizes.
