Fun at the library

Over 200 people attended the Salem Public library’s special pre-Salem Grande Parade event on Aug. 9 which featured a visit by children’s story book

character Pete the Cat. Included in the festivities were story times, face painting, picture taking with Pete the Cat and free balloons. The free event was held on the west lawn of the library and open to the public. Pictured is library staff member, Adriene Savoldi, sharing a story with children and Pete the Cat.(Submitted photo)
