Readers of all ages will explore and experiment the wonders of reading as the Edwards Public Library of Henrietta presents “Fizz, Boom, Read!” during the summer library program. Activities will include programs on animal adaptions, exploring African drums, mixing paint colors, gravity and spinning, “coulrophobia” (fear of clown) and a Home Depot Kid’s Workshop.
