Stars are shining at Palmerton Area Library
LINDA KOEHLER/TIMES NEWS
Star light, star bright, the stars shining at the Palmerton Area Library are quite a sight. This year's summer reading program's theme was "Dream Big Read!" To encourage everyone to read, the library is sponsoring a reading contest for children and adults, with three prizes to be awarded per age category. For every book read, the registered reader puts his/her name on a star and it is added to a star chain. Participants, left to right, Elizabeth Sterner, 7, James DeVore, 11, Raymond Heimbach, 8 and Egan Bellesfield, 10, admire the chain that now stretches throughout the library, working on its third time around. The contest will continue until Sept. 1. To date, over 350 people have registered. If interested in participating, visit the library at 402 Delaware Ave.
