OAK HILL – Some Fayette County students are treated to a fun event today after participating in a long-time summer program.
More than 200 attended the Mad Science 2014 fair Tuesday at the Lively Amphitheater in downtown Oak Hill.
The event is in recognition of the long-running Fayette Co. summer reading program.
On hand was Nick Neutron of Mad Science of West Virginia who treated the kids to a variety of exhibits and demonstrations. The students who participated were between 3 and 12 years old.
Library director Judy Gunsaulis says this event is a great way to reward students for being focused on education during the summer months.
“Studies show that kids lose their reading levels during the summer, and if you can bring them to the library and keep them actively involved in reading than it really helps,” says Gunsaulis.
The summer reading program is observed by all six library locations.
