Imagine being an earthworm living in a tunnel underneath Promontory Point, Utah in 1869 when the first continental railroad is dedicated! Join Lem and Zeke as they try to explain the whole situation to Granny Earthworm at the last RIF program on Wednesday, April 9 at 6:30 p.m. The Friends of the Library and FBLA Students will present “The Golden Spike” as a puppet show and children will all be able to create their very own sock puppet! A train car craft is also planned and children will be able to select their very own books to keep. If children missed previous RIF programs they will be able to select up to three books. Plan now to attend this fun-filled evening!
