Over 4,000 children registered to participate in the 2016 Ascension Parish Library Summer Reading Program “On Your Mark, Get Set...Read.” Children eagerly set reading goals, kept track of their time spent reading and earned great prizes once they read for 100 minutes.

In addition to having thousands of great books available to check out, the library also offered a huge variety of fun programming that kept children of all ages entertained all summer long. Farmer Jason educated us about farm life and the wonders of nature with his great tunes. Adventure unfolded before our eyes with a phenomenal performance from the Emmy Award winning duo, Page Turner Adventures. Fox & Branch entertained us with their award winning folk music show, and had kids and parents singing, laughing, and dancing along. In addition to those outstanding performances, children enjoyed fun Make and Take Crafts, Beach Bingo, Indoor Mini Golf, a Swingin’ Sock Hop, and much, much more. Tweens even joined in the fun with Spa Day, DIY Foosball, and the Chocolate Olympics.

With nearly 7,000 children attending these programs and more, this summer was a huge hit.
