    Editor:
    Being both Camp Jefferson and Fairbury are building a new swimming pool it to me don't seem right to spend all that money to build two new pools only 3 or 4 miles apart. It seems to me the two could get together and build a much better pool together than two separate pools.

The Fairbury Public Library is kicking off its summer reading program with sign ups starting Saturday, April 15. The program starts May 1 and goes until July 28. This year’s theme is “Build A Better World.” For every book your child checks out and reads they will receive an entry form they can fill out to win prizes. Every Friday in June children are invited to come to the library for a fun building time. The library is taking donations of anything children could use as building materials. JENGA blocks, LEGO’s, Lincoln Logs, or any form of building block are welcome and needed. Empty 12 pack soda boxes are also required so the children can build a life-size JENGA game and large cardboard boxes so they can build reading houses. The Summer Reading Programs will take place in the morning and will be open only for the programs during that time.
