Auburn Library kicks off KCLS’ Summer Reading Program | PHOTOS

Children’s entertainer Eric Herman, his sidekick Puppy Dog Dave and Mayor Nancy Backus joined Auburn Library staff to officially kick off the King County Library System’s Summer Reading season on Saturday afternoon.

Kids stepped to Herman’s witty tunes and listened to his amusing stories during the Pacific Northwest artist’s Rock Your World Show. Herman’s songs were about food, animals, science and other things that make the world fun and interesting.

Backus spent some time encouraging children to read and participate in library programming.

The KCLS Summer Reading slate, which runs through Aug. 24, offers a variety of programs – from concerts and workshops to story times and movies.

This year’s theme, Build a Better World, is meant to inspire everyone to join the fun, regardless of age.
