The annual Summer Reading Program is still going on at the Cove library with more fun activities scheduled throughout the week.

Weekly Toddler Time is Tuesdays for ages 1-3 and Story Time is Thursdays for ages 3-5. Both start at 10:30 a.m.

On Tuesday, the local police and fire department will showcase their vehicles and trucks during Big Trucks Day at 2 p.m. This event is for kids ages 5-11.

“This will be like a show and tell for the kids with the departments,” said Kevin Marsh, the library director.

The following day, preteens and teens ages 11-16 can enjoy Book Domino Fun starting at 2:30 p.m. The trend of Book Domino is common among many libraries throughout the country during the Summer Reading Program season.

For example, the Seattle Public Library spearheaded a Book Domino event for its 2013 Summer Reading Program. The event set a world record by using 2,131 retired and donated books.

“Bravo to the librarians who had to put all those books back on their shelves!” said Joshua Trujillo of, a Seattle blog, via email.

Some teen patrons are making predictions on the event. Thomas Major and his twin sister, Deja, Copperas Cove High School juniors, are attending the Summer Reading Program at the Cove library for the second year.

“I hope we beat the record, I’m going to have to see this for myself,” Thomas Major said.

“Our library isn’t as big as in a place like Seattle, but this sounds just as cool,” Deja said.

On Thursday, Austin’s Wild Things Zoofari will make a stop at the Cove library with presentations of exotic animals such as the ring-tailed lemur at 2 p.m. and the second show at 3 p.m.
