New Tricycle
Billa Ogeda, who was the baby girl reader winner, tries out her new tricycle for size at the Dawson County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program End of Summer Bash held last Tuesday at the Forrest Park Community Center. Mothers (and others) read to the youngest children, during the summer program, which gives them a love of the library and a love for books. Every summer the library conducts its summer reading events to encourage families to spend time together reading. (Regina Crutcher/Press-Reporter)
