We had another wonderful Summer of Reading at the Smiley Branch Library this year! We filled the days with amazing programs, craft classes, and even some baby yoga! Mr. Dana was lucky enough to interview two of our most super readers Katelynn and Skyler (in addition to a few special guest stars) about their Summer of Reading adventures. Katelynn and Skyler have attended all of our Summer of Reading activities at Smiley for many years, so they have become something of resident SOR experts.
The Deru family has been visiting the Smiley Branch Library once a week attending our Thursday storytimes with Mr. Dana for many years. Now that many of the Deru boys have graduated from our preschool storytime, they all participate in the Summer of Reading at Smiley attending every program. They are superb crafters and each made fantastic fossils during out Fossil Prints class, sharing some of their knowledge of prehistoric prints with the rest of the group.
