With the audience seated , the program began with Julie informing the children of the dangers being unaccompanied in close proximity of water. With so many juveniles not being able to swim , deaths from drowning have reached an alarming level as seen from the statistics provided by the CDC (Center For Disease Control)

After the presentation the children were then allowed to be part of the usual customary activities organized by Mary-Ann Podbielski , the Library’s story-time teller and volunteer with the Dundee Library. It has been through Mary-Ann’s nonstop efforts and diligent work the Library and Friends of The Library have been able to organize and conduct these planned activities as part of our Summer Reading Program.
