‘Book Your Summer’ was a success

TAFT – The summer reading program, “Book Your Summer at the Taft Public Library,” was a wonderful success. There were 105 children in attendance and all had a wonderful time. The Library would like to recognize friends and teachers, Christina Hiracheta, without whose help the summer reading program would not have been such a success and Lisa Garcia  a teacher at Taft ISD.

Mr. Kippy will be back at the Taft Public Library on Wednesday, Aug. 7. Story Time will be every Wednesday at 10 a.m.

The Wesley Nurse was at the library visiting with some of the Library’s patrons, she answered questions about health issues and other concerns. She is a valuable asset to the Library Family. The next visit is on Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The Food Drive was a success. The Library was able to supply many nonperishable food items to the local Food Pantry.
