LINDEN — The Linden Carnegie Public Library announces it will have a summer reading program. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will be conducted in the picnic shelter at Bulldog Park, Linden, 302 E. Water St., behind the fire station. Although weather may be a factor, organizers believe this is the safest way to provide an in-person program. For updates, information will be posted on Facebook or call the library at 765 339-4239.
“Imagine Your Story” is the theme. Children will be encouraged to imagine what their “story” will look like as they grow up. People from the community from different careers will join participants each week to explore different paths. There will be supplies for 36 children.
Program dates are as follows:
• 2:30 p.m. July 9. Jolinda Brunton will help participants explore bubbles in a different way … through science.
• 2:30 p.m. July 16. Sarah DeVore will show us what it’s like to be a Realtor.
• 2:30 p.m. July 23. Malcolm Mitchell will give a mini boot-camp and tell us what’s it like to be a soldier.
• 2:30 p.m. July 30. Brittany McCloud will demonstrate her baker’s expertise.
A summer reading party is planned for 2:30 p.m. Aug. 4 at Bulldog Park. There will be games, snacks and prizes.
In the event of inclement weather, programs will be rescheduled.
