Library summer reading program coincides with statewide initiative

The Craig branch of the Moffat County Libraries kicked off Independence Day festivities a little early this year. With small American flags in hand, children marched through the bookshelves Thursday morning, singing “You’re a Grand Old Flag.” The miniature parade capped off a weekly summer story-time with a Fourth of July flair, complete with a read-aloud of children’s books commemorating the holiday. Story-time, along with other activities during the library’s summer reading program, are part of a larger effort to keep students turning pages when school is out.
