    The opening event of the Jackson County Memorial Library Summer Reading Program was a huge success. More than 200 kids and 75 adults filled the Services Building Auditorium to learn about snakes from the Texas Snake Man, Clint Pustejovsky. Although Clint was unavailable to run the show, his wife Michelle picked it up without missing a beat.

    “It was out biggest attendance yet,”  Library Director Cherie Robinson said. “There were a lot last year, but this one had even more people.”

    The Snake Man is the first of four planned programs that the library will offer this summer. The next program is the Carranza puppet show on June 22.

    “The puppet show is a husband and wife team from Houston, but just the wife will be coming and she will do a hand puppet show, so it ought to be fun for the kids,” Robinson said.

    Lucas Miller, the Singing Zoologist, will be the third program on July 6.
