Winterport Memorial Library celebrated the completion of its summer reading program with a visit from Senator Mike Thibodeau and his wife, Stacy.

The Thibodeaus were gracious enough to bring their ice cream maker and make ice cream for all the children at the library that day. The event was a huge success, according to the library.

The summer reading program participants read more than 500 books this summer, earning a “Great job!” comment from library staff.
