The library’s entertaining and educational Summer Reading Program children’s events will continue through Aug. 6 at both the Columbus and Saluda libraries.

Performances include magic, music, puppetry, balloon art and comedy. There will also be a movie night and a cookout at Harmon Field. Please note that pre-registration is required for the cookout.

Children of all ages can register for the Summer Reading Program and receive a reading log and other goodies. Kids can then bring their reading logs in every week for a sticker and turn them in at the end of the summer to receive a prize. One lucky reader will also win the grand prize: a gift certificate to The Book Shelf in Tryon.
