The kids are out of school but certainly not out of projects to enjoy. The Claiborne County Public Library is sponsoring several programs over the hazy summer vacation days including its popular annual Summer Reading Program.

The 2015 edition kicked off earlier this month with returning act Gene Cordova, who brought his version of the program “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape.”

It’s not too late to sign up a child 12 and under for these weekly programs, which are scheduled to run each Tuesday morning through the remainder of the summer.

There’s still time to join in the fun during the weekly Adventures in the Kitchen, sponsored by the University of Tennessee Extension Agency 4-H Program.

Children of all ages are learning basic food preparation as they make such popular eats as trail mix, fruit parfaits, veggie pizzas, omelets, salads and quesadilla.

Adults are welcome to participate with their children in this tasty program.

Set to run through July 15, this program begins at 10:30 a.m. each Wednesday.

A pilot program held by the Library last month seems to have been popular enough to suggest a follow-up one in the near future. Several kids came out for LEGO Day and apparently brought with them a truckload of imagination and talent.

For more information about these and other programs, call 423-626-5414. A schedule of the upcoming programs can be found in the Area Happenings of the Claiborne Progress.
