Summer programming for 2023 is officially underway at Tyson Library following last Saturday’s Touch-A-Truck event! We had so much fun seeing our young patrons explore the different vehicles parked on our block of West Tyson Street. The drivers were so great with each young visitor and their families – answering questions, helping them climb into the vehicle, and encouraging them to honk the horn or start the sirens.
This event was made possible with the support of many area businesses and first responders who donated their time. Please join us in thanking the Versailles Police Department, the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office, the Indiana State Police, the Versailles Fire Department, Ripley County EMS, the Versailles Street Department, South Ripley Schools, Southeastern Indiana REMC, Affordable Todd’s Wrecker and Repair, 3C Express, and Crum Trucking. By our informal count, approximately 200 people attended Saturday’s event.
Tyson Library provided BINGO cards that the kids could fill by stopping at each vehicle and getting the driver’s signature. After filling their BINGO cards the kids got to pick a prize from the library’s Treasure Box.
Library staff was also available to sign kids up for summer classes and provide information on the adult programs and events scheduled to take place this season. It is not too late to join us for summer reading! Visit our Summer Explorers page to learn more about summer reading and programs.
