Students Urged To Take Part In Summer Reading Boys and girls in the Florala City Public Library area are invited to take part in the sum- mer reading program spon- sored by the Cross Trails Re- gional Public Library and the Alabama Public Library Set- rice. Mrs. Muriel Savage, lib- rarian of the Florala City Pub- lic Library, member of Cross Trails Regional Library Sys- tem, said the summer reading program is free and would start in early June. The program is open to all boys and girls in grades 2 through 7. Theme of the reading program is "Join the Library Jet Set". This theme was cho- sen, Mrs. Savage said, because of the numerous possibilities in book selection and its high interest appeal to youngsters. Categories of books include tra- vel, adventure, animals and biG- graphy - both fiction and non- fiction. George Pudzis, Mont- gomery artist, has designed a special modernistic symbol to illustrate the theme of action on land, sea and air. Mrs. Elizabeth Parks Beam- guard, director of the Alabama Public Library Service, said the purpose of the state-wide read- mg program is to provide plan- ned recreational reading for boys and girls in their forma- tive years. She said libraries throughout Alabama are co- operating in the program and reading records are inter- changeable so that a child may complete the program even though he may spend part of the summer away from home. Last year was the first time Alabama had a state-wide summer read- ing program and more than 25,000 youngsters participated. Mrs. Savage said that every child completing the program will be awarded a certificate. Parents are invited to contact her at Florala City Public Li- brary to complete enrollment of their children in the summer reading program.
