Winston Library mixes reading skills with fun in summer program

Winston Community Center in Winston, Ore., Aug. 9, 2018. (SBG)

WINSTON, Ore. -- The Winston Library is making sure kids keep up with their reading skills, and have some fun doing it.

The library's summer reading program combines reading with weekly activities.

Kids can face-paint, garden, or try out food while learning how it affects the body.

Organizers say this motivates kids to come back and learn.

"The idea of making them feel like the library is a safe place to come and a place they're always going to be welcome," says Summer Reading Coordinator Peter Tano.

The library also hands out prizes depending on the children's progress with their reading.

The last day of the program is next Thursday.
