MONTE VISTA—The summer reading program finishes on July 18 with storyteller Julie Herrera presenting “Digging into other cultures through the magic of story”. Last week, Ronnie Spencer and Ray Martinez from the SLV Rural Electric Cooperative presented a fun demonstration on electrical safety, starring “Lightning Lucy” and “Neon Leon.” Participants were able to try on some of the protective gear the linemen use on the job and saw what rocks look like when they are struck by lightning.
Just received this week: 20 new books on CD, all unabridged, including mystery, thriller, romance and western genres. Check out our new selections.
