The children's summer reading program at the Franklin County Public Library was literally a blast during the month of June. This year's reading program was Fizz, Boom, Read.
Every Wednesday, the children enjoyed taking on science in a BIG way with our science theme. Mississippi State University Extension Service set up work stations and discussed colors, food, and the environment. Meadville native and 5th grade science teacher, Lequinda Washington shared many exciting experiments with the children. The children especially enjoyed the exploding sea foam experiment.
Several children participated in our robot contest by either drawing, coloring, or making their own robot. Those who participated in the contest received a small prize.
We had a tremendous turnout this year with over 100 children enrolled and hope to see more next year!
