Between catching grasshoppers for the Bug Olympics, learning about a day in the life of spiders, and watching a puppet show about a cockroach kissing booth, children had fun "catching the reading bug" at the Payson Public Library's summer reading program. 282 kids participated this June with more than a third completing all four weeks of the required weekly reading!
