Tuesday, June 26, is the start of the Middlesex County Public Library Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is “Reading Takes You Everywhere.” The first week youngsters will be traveling to the Wild West. They will hear stories and folktales about cowboys and cowgirls. They will make a hobby horse or bandanna and learn some old western songs.

Cowboy Steve will take youngsters on adventures to China, Egypt, India and Dodge City in Kansas. He will use puppets, music, magic and audience participation. The program is for all ages. There is no charge for this program.

Paws to Read will begin on Tuesday, June 26, at 2 p.m. at the Deltaville Library. “We have several well-behaved dogs that just love to listen to stories,” said a program spokesperson. “It is a great opportunity for children to keep up their reading skills over the summer in a fun environment.
