Snapshots around town

The Amazing Bubble Man stacks multiple bubbles on a participant’s head.

The Lebanon Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is becoming quite popular, according to Library Assistant Emma Fish. It’s evident by the sheer number of people who showed up for the bubble show on June 22.

Children of all ages sign up for the program and log the books they read for a chance to win prizes. They also earn points by attending the Thursday events that include (this year) a comedian, Japanese folklore and music, rocks and fossils, junk art, an interactive movie day, and science and craft day.

Stop by the library at 55 Academy St. for more information, or call all 541-258-4926.
