Final Reading Program a treasure

By Librarian Fran Smith

Webster County Public Library


The final Summer Reading Program at Webster County Public Library on June 25 was a treasure.

Dressed as the pirate, Capt. Jack Sparrow, Ms. Bonnie read “Do Pirates Take A Bath?” to the children. They discussed all the things pirates do, such as what they eat, getting lost, having birthdays, their work, treasure hunting and of course, taking a bath.

After the story, each child was given a bottle filled with rice and buried objects. They had to find the objects then circle the picture on a sheet. All enjoyed this activity, especially when they found out how much noise they could make while looking for the treasures.

After the story and craft time, prizes and certificates were awarded. Jada Goldman and D.P. Salley won sunglasses and posters for reading the most books. Everyone received certificates for attending and those who read books also received a trophy. As the children were leaving they received a small treasure chest with a bookmark, tattoos and chocolate gold coins as well as a bag with coloring sheets and colors from CB&S Bank.

The library would like to thank Eye Clinic of Eupora, CB&S Bank, Deweese Title Loan, Duncan Veterinary Clinic, State Farm Insurance, Belinda Stewart, Bonita Martin and the Friends of the Webster County Library for their contribution to the Summer Reading Program. Their financial help made the program a success.
