Ever wonder what a rockhound is? Kids and teens ages 7-17 will find out what it takes to be a rockhound when the Puyallup Valley Gem and Mineral Club will show what kinds of rocks are “keepers” and what tools and equipment they’ll need. Kids and teens will also hear suggestions for places to look for rocks, get tips for starting and maintaining their very own rock collection, and discover the rockhounding rules. Come root out the truth about rockhounding; your average rock may be more than the eye beholds.
This FREE special library event is part of the “Dig Into Reading!” summer reading program for children.Click here for a schedule of more events each week. Designed to keep young people reading during the long hot days of summer, the summer reading program at the Puyallup Public Library offers fun incentives to help children maintain their reading skills. All children who spend time reading, listening to an audio book, or being read to, can enter drawings for great prizes. Plus, every child who reads (or is read to) at least 10 hours this summer will get a FREE book and a ticket to Northwest Trek/Pt. Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, as well as free goodies at local retailers. The 2013 summer reading program runs June 17 through August 17. It is generously funded by the Friends of the Puyallup Library and many local businesses.
