Robotic maze, mascot visits and fun activities at Richmond Public Library over the weekend.

The Richmond Public Library was far from being quiet with families and children celebrating the end of summer with literacy activities and prizes on Sunday.

Several hundreds of Richmond kids and parents attended the RPL’s summer reading club finale event as a way to recognize the children’s reading achievements over the summer this year.

“It’s really great to see so many people celebrate reading, celebrate reading books and just literacy in general,” said Kate Adams, head of children and family services at RPL.

“One of the purposes of the summer reading club is to get kids reading for fun and … the more you do it for fun you’ll enjoy it more later in life.”

From a robotic maze to classic bowling, kids went around the library collecting stamps to earn themselves prizes.

Richmond artist Jeni Chen was also at the library showcasing her artwork and how people can create art from using recycled material.
