Bluffton, Indiana, was nicknamed “The Parlor City” over a century ago because its paved streets (a new phenomenon at the time) made the city “as clean as your parlor."
Beginning Monday, June 4, readers of all ages will explore the night this summer as Bluffton Public Library presents the "Dream Big - Read!" and "Own the Night" summer reading programs. Activities include programs on relaxation, wishes, nocturnal animals, ghosts and fairy tales.
The 2012 summer reading program is open to everyone from babies to adults with programs, prize drawings, storytimes and more. Those participating in the program will receive reading goals to accomplish in order to obtain prizes and/or prize ticket entries.
Registration for "Dream Big - Read" and "Own the Night" begins June 4 at the library. For more information, call the library at 419-358-5016, visit the library's Facebook page or check out the library's website at www.blufftonpubliclibrary.org.
