Today’s the last day for local youngsters to sign up for the Petersburg Public Library’s summer reading challenge. It’s a chance for kids in grades one through eight to win prizes for reading books while school is out of session.
It’s one of several summer programs that didn’t happen last year as library staff moved out of the old building and into the new. Joe Viechnicki spoke with program coordinator Jess Ieremia and library clerk Barb Steltz about this year’s reading challenge.
