We also want to remind kids and teens to participate in our summer reading contest this year, “How Slow Can You Go?” Participants will need to design and decorate a parachute that will have the longest hang time when dropped from a height of 20 feet. The competition will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 30. Details are at the front desk.
