From Julie Shook - Library Director , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Summer is officially here, summer reading has begun. Our first program for grades 1 & up was Tuesday June 10. We had an attendance of 96.

Our topic was weather and weather spotter Randy Cooper from rural Toledo was our presenter. Randy was able to come on very short notice, our TV weather person that was scheduled was unable to come. Thanks Randy!

We all made cloud ID weather windows, and played with rain sticks and tornado bottles.
