Library board discusses summer program

The “Get in the Game, READ!” summer reading program is online, in the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries and on the Discovery Bus June 1 through Aug. 1. A kickoff celebration with bouncy houses, face painting, popcorn, games and more will be at the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries from 2 to 6 p.m. June 1.

Participants of all ages will receive prizes when registering and entries for reaching a certain number of days read.
