At 9:30 the Children’s Department will offer stories and crafts for the children who participated in the “Midsummer Knight’s Read” program. At 10 a.m. will be a celebration of the children who participated in the Danville District 118 Accelerated Reader summer reading program.

Three prizes will be awarded to the top readers in each grade, K through five.
The reading celebration will also give parents in Vermilion County and Fountain County, Ind., the first opportunity to register their children, ages birth to five, for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program.
