Continuing with the theme of ‘Build a Better World’ children in the Summer Reading Program got a chance to practice their building skills on Tuesday.

For the Tuesday Story Time session at the Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library, the children received a book of their own with a building or construction theme.

For the group story, the children listened as Miss Monica read a book about Curious George and what happened when he decided to build his own house where he could have his own rules.

After the story, the children got the chance to show off their skills by completing different building challenges with legos.

Tuesday’s session was scheduled to include an appearance by Clarksville-based children’s author Michael Shoulders, but due to a scheduling issue Shoulders did not make it to the library on Tuesday morning.

Next week, the Tuesday Story Time session will feature a visit from the Rangers at Roan Mountain State Park, which is always a favorite with the children.

The following week, on Tuesday, July 25, and Wednesday, July 26, the library will host the grand finale celebration for the Summer Reading Program. In years past the closing celebration has been held at a local park but this year it will take place at the library.
