Library celebrates summer reading

The Cedar Springs Public Library celebrated the end of its summer reading program last Wednesday, July 25, with its annual carnival in Morley Park.

This year’s reading program, titled Dream BIG…Read! was a hit, with 778 people signed up, and almost 1,700 people attended 22 programs from June 11-July 25. Businesses and individuals donated over $3,700 to help fund programming, and over 200 prizes were given away.

Between 350 and 400 attended the Reading Carnival Grand Finale in Morley Park July 25, sponsored by Family Fare/Spartan Stores. Children enjoyed being sprayed by the CS Fire Department, two hours of model airplane flying by the Wolverine Skyhawks in Skinner Field, bounce houses, games, ice cream, a petting zoo and several other games and demonstrations put on by local groups and businesses. A bike and 67 other prizes were given away. First grader Tayson Doncis was the proud winner of the bike given away by Family Fare.
