The Summit County Library continues its summer reading program, "Build a Better World," geared toward local children, teens and adults, at the library's three locations this month.
Additionally, there will be special events for children of all ages this week.
The South Branch Library in Breckenridge will play host to Dari Johnson on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday for a fun-filled yoga instruction time for children from preschool to fifth grade.
"Dari brings her passion for yoga and inspiration to the Summer Reading Program," said Joyce Dierauer, executive director for Summit County Library. "We hope children of all ages who have met Dari or want to try yoga for the first time attend this great program."
On Wednesday, Johnson will be at the North Branch Library in Silverthorne from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and at the Main Library in Frisco from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
"The library is fortunate to have Dari visit all three library locations," said Dierauer.
