The first of three Reading is Fundamental (RIF) programs, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, will be held on Wednesday, February 11. “The Three Little Fishies and the Big, Bad Shark” will be presented in skit form by members of the Future Business Leaders of America. Each child will also be able to select their very own book to keep. RIF is a federal program that has been in existence since 1966. The program focuses on encouraging children to read by showing them that reading is truly fun. Through RIF, children have the opportunity to choose their very own book by themselves; books that excite them and books that they get to keep for their own. The program also encourages parental involvement and we encourage parents to participate with their children. For more information about library programs call or stop by.
