Summer Reading Club activities off to a fun, flying start at Graves-Hume Public Library

Youngsters enjoy outdoor activities while learning about dinosaurs at Graves-Hume Public Library.

MENDOTA - The Summer Reading Club “Dig Deeper: Read. Investigate. Discover” is well on its way at Graves-Hume Public Library. Week one (July 6-8) was all about dinosaurs for the younger kids. They stomped, roared and ran like dinosaurs. Some even dug for bones using their archeological skills. Of course, there was always time for snacks for the dino friends.

The older participants discovered raptors with Berni and George from SOAR (Save Our American Raptors), pictured below. They learned about birds of prey and even saw a few raptor birds. To find more information about SOAR, visit

Summer Reading Club members have also been reading and logging in their books for prizes and tickets for the grand prize. Trivia questions are available each week. This week, depending on the age, kids were asked to name a specific dinosaur, what does the acronym SOAR stand for, or how many different raptor birds are there.
