Vendor spaces inside & out - Singles $30 weekly" & up Outside & yard sale spaces - $7 per day & $15 per day Experienced vendors preferred Summer reading kicks offin Kyle he highlight of the kickoff party for the Kyle Community Library s summer reading program was when Mayor Lucy Johnson read two stories to a packed room of attentive children. People lined up waiting for the library to open on Wednesday, June 16. Children and the adults accompany- ing them followed train tacks made out of blue painter's tape into the library's commu- nity room to hear the mayor read. The tracks were part of this year's summer reading theme, Catch the Reading Express. Mayor Johnson read two books illustrated by her friend md former classmate Julian Hector. The first book, The Little Matador, was both writ- ten and illustrated by Mr. Hec- tor. Laura Godwin wrote the second, which was entitled This is the Firefighter. During the question and answer period following the stories, the mayor fielded incisive questions from I(yle's younger citizens reflecting their real-world issues and concerns. To the question "Where did you learn to read?," Mayor lohnson replied that she learned to read at school here in Kyle, just as members of her audience were. She also was asked how she picked the books she had just read to them. Then everyone went out- side to break a pifiata that looked like Thomas the Tank Engine. In additionto candy from the pifiata, partygoers munched on cookies from the Texas Pie Co. and sipped cups of punch. Before and after story time, many people signed up for the summer reading program and checked out books. Many new books were put out for the first time, and most were checked out within the first hour. The usually crowded shelves of picture books have  lots of room now, thanks to all the books being circulated. ii This is an excellent way to  ..... deai00th the library's crowded i00ii book shelves! .....
