Where in the universe is Westover, Alabama?

By FRANKIE OSBORN / Community Columnist

The Westover Library kicked off its summer reading program on Thursday, June 13, with the theme of “Universal Reading.”

The story for the day was “Pete the Cat – Out of this World.” Librarian Annette Tyler had a fun line-up of events including talks about space travel, making a home-made rocket, snacks and computer time.

The library has been open since 2006 and is a part of the state of Alabama’s summer reading program. The kids will keep a log of the books they read, and the top readers will receive prizes after the third week.

Assisted by Sandy Johnson, these ladies make it a fun experience for elementary children.

Times are noon to 2 p.m., and snacks are provided.

If you missed this one, you still have a chance to get to the next two.

On Thursday, June 20 the Alabama 4-H Center will be guests, and the theme is “Alabama Birds of Prey.” They will be bringing out some very exciting birds.

Then, on Thursday, June 27, the guests will be from The McWane Center, and the theme for this day is “Explosives.” No telling what may happen!

Don’t let your children miss out on some fun time, and let’s make Westover proud with a good turnout.

Regular library hours are Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Let’s keep our kids reading this summer!
