NEWTON COUNTY — A lot of excitement is brewing around a summer reading program in Southwest Missouri.
The Neosho-Newton County Library is partnering with faithful friends animal advocates for their Tails and Tales program.

It will also feature prize giveaways from bikes, scooters and books to take home.
Kids will participate on Tuesdays through Thursdays at 10 A.M.
An adult reading program will take place on Mondays as well.
Along with educating kids on animals, Library Director, Carrie Cline says they will be doing much more.
