Firefighters from South Whatcom Fire Authority will put down their fire hoses and pick up books Friday, July 24, in the South Whatcom Library meeting room. From 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., they will read aloud to children, give tours of a firetruck, and hang out with the kids.
The event comes during the library’s “Every Hero Has a Story” summer reading program, which runs through Aug. 31.
Kindergarteners through fifth-graders are welcome to come to the library at 10 Barn View Court to participate. Details: Children’s Services Specialist Tammy LaPlante, 360-305-3600, ext. 219.
