Library talks to students about summer programs

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – On Thursday, representatives from the Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library visited Valley View Intermediate to let students know about summer programs offered at the library.

Beth Carr, third grade teacher, said keeping children reading during the summer months is very important.    

"It's a real neat program because this is a time when parents can take their children to the public library and they can check out books and bring them home.  She talked to our children about if you have a long trip and you want to check out an audio book and listen to that.  It keeps the children engaged in reading."

Around 500 3rd and 4th graders were at the event.
