The library's Summer Reading Program is in full swing.
"There are two parts to summer reading," said Rising Sun librarian Susan Newstead, also known as "Miss Susan".
"Children sign up to read books and keep track on a reading log to win prizes. The second part is the programs the libraries hold nearly every day. The programs are for babies through teenagers."
Newstead led one of those programs last Wednesday. In it, children learned about "sound words" and then made a Pop Art project featuring those words.
Pop Art, which can be found in some of the graphic novels at the library, was made famous by artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.
Program participants looked through books for sound words like "bam" and "pop".
"We talked about how sound words help you find out what's going on in the story," Newstead said.
Eight-year-old Jayson Adcock enjoyed the opportunity to come to the library.
"I really like drawing," he said. "And I'm doing something away from the house instead of playing games and Xbox."
