That family summer habit called "reading"

Ada Public Library is hub for this attraction

That familiar summer habit called "reading" is underway in Ada. 

The Ada Public Library is the hub of this popular summer attraction. The library uses Beanstack for this summer’s programming titled "Tails and Tales."

It's gross game Tuesday!

Natalie Walton of the public library shares all the details

You’ve probably not heard of “Gross Game Tuesday.”

But, you have now and it a game to be played in pairs with your family, friends or anyone you can coax into playing.

Natalie Waldon of the Ada Public Library likes these games so much that she is sharing them twice a month in an instructional library Facebook video.

She says that all you need to play this game is whipped cream (or shaving cream) and cheese puffs.

Once the equipment is gathered coat your partner’s face with your topping of choice (see photo). Now the fun begins.

Toss cheese puffs at your partner’s face. The face with the most cheese puffs wins.
