The Natchitoches Parish Public Library held a preregistration May 6 for its Summer Reading Program, which starts June 1. The program is not just for elementary aged schoolchildren, there are catagories for teens and adults as well. Over 500 parish residents took advantage of the popular reading program last summer.
The event featured face painting, games and the library’s ubiquitous popcorn machine as well as a group of local musicians. Every person who completes the program will win a t-shirt emblazoned with this year’s unique design. There are other prizes available for readers young and old. The Natchitoches Parish Journal joins the library in urging the young people of the parish to have some fun, win some prizes and keep their reading skills sharp this summer!
