Summertime means swimming, and hiking, and lots of other outdoor activities.
But it also means encouraging your children to read.
So Wednesday, Bryan's Clara B. Mounce Library and the Children's Museum of the Brazos Valley kicked off the Summer Reading Program.
The Big Rig Event featured fire trucks for kids to explore, 18-wheelers where you could jump up in the cab and toot the horn, and even Moonbounces to release some of that kid energy.
Librarians are encouraging kids and their parents to read this summer.
Librarian Bobbee Pennington says, "If a child sees you reading at home, so adults join the Summer Reading Club, that's really important for their summer reading success."
The Summer Reading Program includes a number of events at the Bryan and College Station libraries throughout the summer.
Check it out, and remember that reading, and reading to your children help kids become better students.
