CARMEL — The folks at Simpson Memorial Library are trying to put a little more fun into their summer reading program for children.
They have filled up bags with goodies, including craft supplies, books and a reading list, so kids can check off the books they read.
Director Lee McCartin said normally the reading program is in person just one day a week, but this year, the bags can be picked up and taken home any day of the week to make it easier for those participating.
She says it’s all about getting people back into the library safely and making it fun.
“Every week they get a gold coin and at the end of the summer we’ll have a store and they can buy little prizes,” she said.
The program runs from June 22 through Aug. 3.
