Robertsdale Library blasts off into summer reading


ROBERTSDALE, Alabama -- The Robertsdale Public Library blasted off into its summer reading program with a kickoff celebration on Wednesday, June 5 at the library on Pennsylvania Street.

Boys and girls ages 3 to 12 were entertained by Professor Greybeard (aka John Wicks) of Mr. Bond’s Science Guys and enjoyed hot dogs and chips while signing up for the program, which will be held throughout the month of June.

Fun programs will be held every Wednesday beginning at 10 a.m. at the library, including the Adventures of the Gingerbread Man puppet show June 12; Gene Cordova, ventriloquist, June 19; and Tom Rayborn, Tom Foolery juggling extravaganza on June 26.

Summer reading program participants also signed up for the “Reading with Nayla and Friends,” program in memory of canine resident Nayla, who died this past year.

Participants can schedule times every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday to read with new library canine Gracie May Elizabeth Nall and her new friend, Dozier, a 6-year-old German Shepherd.
