'Be creative at your library': Programs scheduled at Perham library this summer

Studies show that students who don't read over the summer are less prepared for school success in the fall.

The Perham Area Public Library makes summer reading more fun with the 2009 Summer Reading Program, "Be Creative @ Your Library."

Explore the worlds of music, dance, art, books and more through this program that is open to young people, pre-school through eighth grade. Programs, prize drawings, story hours, reading clubs and so much more will be in full swing throughout the months of June and July.
