The kids of Othello, and the adults, too, are being asked to Dig Into Summer Reading by Mid-Columbia Libraries.
The summer reading program, which runs through Aug. 31, encourages people to read for 15 hours this summer.
People who reach this goal are entered to win one of several prizes, including 45 Visa gift cards. Participating young people can also win a free book.
The Othello library is hosting a series of events and programs for kids to help them get into the spirit.
The first kick-off event was an Imagination Garden craft project June 21. Led by Terry Rice, the class allowed young people to build their own imagination garden, complete with a pot with their name on it, a birdhouse they painted themselves and special decorations to help transform the dirt into a playground for fairies or home base for super heroes.
Rice came up with the idea for the little gardens when spending time with her grandchildren, she said, and it's a fun project for the kids to do.
Some upcoming events at the Othello library include Panning for Gold, July 11 at 2 p.m., Digging for Hobbies, July 25 at 3 p.m., and Making Fireflies, Aug. 15 at 3 p.m.
