Vivian Wilson from Spaulding Park visited the library's Summer Reading Program last Thursday.  She told about the Nez Perce legend of how the moon came about.  We then had an activity to see how the moons craters were made by using flour with red jello sprinkled on top.  By dropping a golf ball and ping pong ball we could see how deep the craters would be and how far the dust would spread.  Our last week of the program will be this Thursday.  WE WILL BE MEETING AT THE CITY PARK THIS THURSDAY THE 26TH FROM 1:30-3:00.  We will be awarding prizes, so please bring your reading charts to the park.
