Summer Reading Program

May 21, 2009 · Filed Under Events and News 

The Fort Worth Library’s annual summer reading program will get under way with a kickoff event at 11 a.m. May 21, in the Central Library Gallery, 500 W. Third St. Mayor Mike Moncrief will be attending and making remarks, as well Mayor Pro Tem Kathleen Hicks and Robert Earley, president and CEO of JPS Health Network. Hicks and Earley are honorary co-chairs for the event. The event is free and open to the public.

The kickoff will include a health fair, which also is open to the public and free. Planned activities include an aerobics demonstration and free testing for diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure. There also will be children’s activities, including jump rope and hula-hoop contests and a “fruit walk” (instead of the traditional cake walk). Booth workers will be sharing information on eating healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The health fair runs from noon until 4:30 p.m., and all ages are welcome.
