On Tuesday May 31, the Fort Scott Public Library will celebrate the beginning of their summer schedule, reading program and other activities with a party at the Fort Scott Community College walking trail from 10 a.m. to noon.
Children of all ages are invited to attend the event which will include water games, trivia, snacks, crafts, prizes and an opportunity to register for the summer reading program.
A family story walk and scavenger hunt will be available along the walking trail for the first hour of the event, with Fort Scott High School mascot Tigger on-hand for photos. Relay races will be held during the second hour with an Olympic-style medal ceremony at the end to award prizes with help from the local Boy Scout Troop 114.
Those interested in volunteering their time or donating items such as food, beverages and other supplies for the event are encouraged to contact Youth Librarian Valetta Cannon.
In the case of rain, the event will be moved to the public library for a scaled-down version of the planned events.
