August 7, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — There are certain signs that summer is beginning to wind down — cooler nights, back-to-school sales and, last but not least, the conclusion of the Punxsutawney Memorial Library's summer reading program.

"The theme for this summer's program was 'Dig Into Reading,’" said Coral Ellshoff, Punxsutawney Memorial Library director.

"It's been all about underground adventures, moving dirt, gardening, underground animals and mining," she said. "The musician we have here today, Jay Smar, specifically sings coal mining songs."
