This past week our Summer Reading Program took a destructive turn. When we say destructive, we literally mean as such. Carts and carts of computers and everyday used electronics were brought out to Veterans park for the kids to destroy. Normally when we destroy it’s thrown away into some unknown abyss that we forget doesn’t really “go” anywhere but put in a large pile out of site out of mind. To align ourselves with the this year’s Summer Reading Program theme of “Building a Better World” we’re showcasing how you can deconstruct only to re-use. Next week those same families will be taking those broken down computer parts to put together in some creative way as wearable fashion, jewelry or something else that means something to them. This is a great way to showcase the many uses and re-purposing of everyday household items!
We have one more program left for this years Summer Reading, be sure and come out and join us July 26th at Salmon Public Library 12:30 for the reconstruction of those parts! As always remember Lemhi’s After School Promise will be doing a FREE lunch service for those students from 0-18 from 12:00-12:30.
