REVEAL! Fantasy Olympics

To finish off the Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Program, we let Pawling choose the end of one more great adventure. This time around, Dragon Phil, Unicorn Carla, and Fairy Neena gathered to compete in the Fantasy Olympics. The event–who can find the hidden object in the pie fastest? Thanks to everyone who read and completed social distancing challenges this summer–we hope you enjoyed participating in our stories! Want to see the results of our other stories from this summer?

REVEAL: Color Change Ms. Neena’s Hair

Colorella the color fairy paid a visit to our library this last week, and made sure that the kids and teens who voted in our Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Program had their wishes come true. In exchange for reading time and learning challenges, participants got to choose what color Colorella the fairy would magically change Ms. Neena’s hair to! And after all the votes were in…a color was chosen! Was it pink, purple, or blue? Visit our Facebook or our Instagram to see the winning color, and keep your eyes peeled for our final Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Challenge Reveal later in the week!    

REVEAL! Donald’s Art

Did you know that Donald Partelow, our adult program coordinator, also illustrates books and creates wonderful art? Well, this last week, as part of our Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Challenge, we let Pawling decide what Donald would draw for our Community.
