Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald
TAMA NEWS-HERALD -Week one of our summer reading program here at the Tama Library started out with a splash on Tuesday June 8, for the kids in grade 1 and up.

KCRG-TV9 Justin Gerhts presented a weather program and taught us about clouds and all types of precipitation. He also talked about flooding and reminded everyone not to go into flood waters. “Turn Around, Don’t Drown”.

After Justin’s program all the kids made sand bottles with colored sand, played a game of Beach Ball Bowling and had a snack of candy orange slices so no one would get scurvy.

Thursday’s program for preschoolers and Kindergarteners, was a wet day too.

We read three books –There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Trout, by Teri, Sloat; Over In The Ocean In The Coral Reef by Marianne Berkes; and Smiley Shark by Ruth Galloway. The rest of the program was the same as Tuesdays.

Attendance of Tuesday was 110, and on Thursday it was 35. This year’s sponsors include, Manatt’s; Spahn and Rose; Laurie’s Hair Affair; Hardee’s; Subway; Home Federal Savings Bank; State Bank of Toledo; Sandhill Auto Salvage; MercyCare Tama & Dr. Wille; Tama Library Foundation; and private donations, Corey and Keely Upah; Matt and Stephanie Babinat; and Richard and Janice Glass.
