On Thursday Bob Hansler returned to the Runge Public Library to talk about horses and his time using horses doing rescue work. He talked about why they use horses for work like that and also about how to take care of them and how to approach them. After demonstrating different kinds of saddles and bridles, everyone moved outside to interact with two beautiful horses that Mr. Hansler had brought with him.
We've had a terrific time this summer, and we want to thank all of the people who shared programs with us as well as all of you who came to see the programs. Working together we kept our community entertained and informed and we kept our kids reading. How much reading? Well, our top picture book reader, Pedro Villanueva, read 311 books this summer. Our top chapter book reader was Jessica Villanueva, who read over 150 books. Take a moment to appreciate just how awesome that is! If you see Pedro and Jessica around town, be sure to give them a “Good Job!”
And now? Well Runge, we've seen you support kids reading this summer, and now it's your turn to enjoy some reading. Our Runge Reading Throwdown will begin on July 28 and is open to anyone reading chapter books or above. This is a team sport, but you will be eligible for some pretty terrific individual prizes as well, so call or come by the Runge Public Library and sign up now!
