The Howland Branch of the Warren Trumbull County Library wrapped up its summer reading season with two programs for children, origami lessons and a wild west show reminiscent of the days of Buffalo Bill.
Christine Petrell Kallevig, the author of five books of stories about the history of the ancient art of paper folding, known as origami, presented the art to children last month. Kallevig told stories while folding pieces of paper into the characters she was speaking about in her tales.
Kallevig also is the author of two children's novels and two educational manuals. Her first book was published in 1971.
Kent State University Trumbull Campus Theatre presented a Wild West Show at the Howland Branch of the Warren Trumbull County Library July 31. Pictured from left are student actors Katrina Bachman, Murphy Sharp and Hunter Thomas.
Children attending the program also were able to try their hand at origami paper folding under Kallevig's direction.
The finale to the summer reading program was a presentation of Kent State Trumbull Theatre's Summer Stock production of ''Buffalo Bill's Rootin' Tootin' High Falutin' Wild West Show," directed by Jeff Butts and performed for the children at the library by Katrina Bachman, Murphy Sharp and Hunter Thomas.
