Jim Rule, a teacher at Penn Elementary School in Reading, has performed across North America and Europe and entertained almost 100 local children as well as parents and grandparents during the "Make A Splash-Read" kickoff. To help promote reading and the annual summer event, all children in attendance at the McConnellsburg summer reading program were presented with a free book by library officials and volunteers. The program will continue this Friday with local bass angler Darick Brumbaugh of Fort Littleton demonstrating a variety of fishing techniques and lures to children ages 8 and up. Additional information about the "Make A Splash-Read" program can be obtained by contacting the library at 717-485-5327.
