Major props to the for getting on board with Western Springs Patch announcements and sharing a bevy of stuff about their upcoming summer reading programs and events! This weerk, check out their celebration of flip-flops (the shoes, not the political trick) and a visit by one crazy jump-rope champ.

—Guinness World Record Holder David Fisher, aka The Rope Warrior, has jumped his way into the hearts of millions of fans throughout the world.
—Upon completion of reading 6 books (ebooks and audiobooks count!) you will receive a free Thomas Ford Library Tote Bag.
—This summer Thomas Ford Memorial Library invites all children to celebrate and travel the globe as it presents “One World, Many Stories.”
