All Summer Reading participants in grades 6-8 are invited to a powder paint battle. Your goal: cover opposing team members with powder of your team’s color! Please wear clothing that you don’t mind getting stained (white is best) and bring an old towel. Snacks will be served and Summer Program prizewinners will be announced. You are also invited to stay from 3-4 p.m. to cheer on the high schoolers in their battle. We will be playing at the library’s property located at Campbell & 6th Street.
