The Great Bend Public Library was no place for reading Wednesday afternoon, at least not outside where water games were going on. The children’s department offered outdoor water games, starting with a water balloon toss.
There were kiddie pools to splash in and flavored ice sticks for everyone, with some prizes.
The summer reading program continues, with contests and activities for all ages.
