Exeter Public Library has begun their summer reading program this year with the theme of "One World, Many Stories."
The library solicited coins and dolls from all over the world for the participants which are now on display. Books were also chosen to reflect the theme. Kindergarten and first graders enjoyed their first session reading stories and making their own travel suitcase.
During the month-long program the participants will be able to fill out travel vouchers for each book they read and turn them into the library for a prize drawing.
