To kick off its Children’s Summer Reading Program, a book sale and a magic show were held at C. H. Booth Library on Monday, June 24.
Magician Steve Woyce offered two showings of a “Dig Into Reading Magic Show,” for children between the ages of four and fifth grade in the library’s meeting room for the day.
