Summer Bash Celebrating Reading: Where Else? At the Library

Children who participated in the Pottstown Regional Public Library's summer reading program will be treated to an "End of Summer Bash" tomorrow from 5 to 7 p.m. at the library, according to children's librarian Leslie Stillings.

The bash, which will feature a petting zoo, games, food and prizes for participants, is designed to "create a sense of community, parents meet other parents and children find new playmates," according to Stillings.

"Children and their families get to celebrate their accomplishments," she wrote of the event.

"Literacy is a family affair," according to Stillings.

"We are not a silent library – we encourage exploration through play and hands on interaction with books, animals, games, and educational toys," she wrote.

"The library is a place of active exchange; an exchange of ideas, information, and social matters," according to Stillings.
