A player and cheerleader for the Sioux Falls Storm indoor football team traveled to the Dell Rapids Carnegie Library for an event on Wednesday, March 30th. The Sioux Falls Storm have been doing this outreach program with the Sioux Falls libraries for a few years, but according to Library Director Brittany Moeller this was the first time that they have visited a library outside of Sioux Falls. The two read stories to around 115 children who attended the event. Afterwards they signed autographs and talked with those who attended.
Moeller said, “Since this program was such a success, it is definitely something we would love to do again in the future.”
The library’s next big event is the Summer Reading Program. Sign up will begin in May and the programs and reading will begin in June and run through July. This year’s theme is “On your mark, get set…READ!” and follows a sports and wellness/fitness theme. Moeller said that they have lots of fun activities planned for the Summer Reading Program.
