The Brownwood Public Library’s wildly successful Summer Reading Program for children continued Thursday as two park rangers from Dinosaur Valley State Park near Glen Rose brought exhibits including animal skins and fossils.
    Inside the library, ranger Candyce Johnson displayed animal skins and invited children to come up in groups to touch the skins.
    Outdoors, ranger Jenn Menge guided students through activities including searching through containers of sand for fossils, which the children brushed off.
    Thursday’s session brought a total of 215 visitors including the adults who attended with their children, children’s librarian Jan McLaughlin said.
    The Summer Reading Program has two more sessions before it wraps up with a celebration party at the Riverside Park pavilion. The party will feature a visit by trick roper Kevin Fitzpatrick of Bandera.
    The June 29 session features a presentation by Beverly Norris, curator of the Lehnis Railroad Museum. On July 6, a member of the San Angelo Symphony will be present.
    Summer Reading is divided into two groups for the Thursday sessions — 10 a.m. to 10:45 for preschool through first grade, and 11:15 a.m. to noon for grades two through 6.
