About 100 children and adults celebrated the end of the annual Summer Reading Program at the Shippensburg library Tuesday evening, with a pizza party filled with fun activities.
Children, youth and adults were rewarded for reaching goals as they explored “A Universe of Stories.” A total of 278 children, youth and adults took part in the program that included reading challenges and goals, as well as fun activities. The Shippensburg Kiwanis supports the reading program by sponsoring the pizza each year -- something the club has done for many years as part of its ongoing goal to support children and youth programs and activities in the Shippensburg area.
Those who participated in the program and reached their individual reading goals were rewarded with prizes that included stickers, games, books, and a variety of other items. Children could grab a slice of pizza and peruse through the reading room to choose their prizes. Outdoor games were also available
for anyone who wanted to take the fun outside.
Many of the children stopped to search for new books to continue their reading journeys.
The library is gearing up for the upcoming school year and its Youth Services Programs that run September through December, as well as a wide range of programs that are sure to be fun and challenging for children of all ages!
