The Wauneta Public Library has started their annual reading and craft program, which is presented by Ruth Hohl, Cindy and Lindsay Acton.

This program has encouraged young kids to use the library and read throughout the summer for 15-plus years.

Throughout the years the location has moved. When the program started out it was located in what is now Advanced Auto owned by Bob Goings.

Every year there is a different theme and name for the program. This year the name is “Dig It.”

The “Dig It” program continues for six weeks where kids in preschool through third grade can come and listen to stories and make crafts.

Many bigger libraries have programs year long that are very similar to “Dig It.” The Wauneta Public Library librarian says they do not host a year long program because there aren’t as many kids and there are many other activities going on during the school year.

“Dig It” will meet on Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. MT/ 11 a.m. CT. The remaining dates are June 19 and 26.
