Whoever said reading is dead didn’t see the young generation immersing themselves in reading and related activities each Wednesday in June at the Larsen-Sant Library.

Kids from pre-school age through adolescents took part in the Friends of the Library’s Summer Reading Program.

And while the formal program has ended for those kindergarten-age and up, preschoolers can still participate through the summer in the weekly programs which are held on Wednesdays at 11 a.m.

Librarian Diane Bingham oversees that program, which, like that for the older kids, is themed “Dig Into Reading.”

The preschoolers can get free books and more by participating in the program, which also includes handouts with things parents can do with their child at home, Bingham said.

Because of a shorter attention span, the fast-paced program is limited to 45 minutes and includes a storytime, dancing, singing and other activities, she said.
