ISHPEMING - Kids at the Ishpeming Carnegie Public Library started wrapping up their summer reading program with a roar Tuesday afternoon.

"We've been doing dinosaurs all summer," children's librarian Sue Danielson said.

The programming, which followed the "Dream Big Read" theme used by other libraries in the area, allowed kids to make crafts, read dinosaur books - both fiction and non-fiction - and make dinosaur t-shirts.

On Tuesday, kids met at the library to build a craft, enjoy a dinosaur-themed snack and read the book, "Don't invite Dinosaurs to Dinner."

They paraded from the library to nearby Spencer Hyde Park for an ice cream picnic before returning to the library to complete their craft projects.

Danielson said about 50 kids attended each of the activities held throughout the summer.
