The Ada Public Library ended the summer reading program last week with the most ever participants.

This year, 550 local residents turned in logs about what they read. This is the first year that the library has passed the 500 figure.

To end the program, the library sponsored a pool/pizza party and the traditional “sliming” of the library director and youth services director, Rhett Grant and Natalie Walton.

and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.”
