Smokey the Bear Visits the Bayard Public Library!
About 50 children in the Bayard Public Library's Summer Reading Program received a special visit from Smokey the Bear on July 20th. U.S. Forest Service members were on hand to teach fire safety skills to the children.
The children were then treated to goodie bags which included comic books, coloring books, bookmarks, and stickers.
As you can see from the pictures below, the Summer Reading Program Kids packed the conference room for the Smokey the Bear presentation.
