Flying Fish Hit Arcade Free Library!!!

Koi windsocks were the order of the day @ Arcade's Summer Reading Program.






K-3 readers created theirs with envelope bodies, colored marker faces and scales, and paper streamer tails!










4 - 6 readers re-cycled 2-litre pop bottles to create their versions of these traditional Japanese flying fish...


Come on in and see what next week holds in store!
