Other summer programs include Touch a Truck at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 21, at Pool Park, where kids can get up close to town vehicles like fire trucks, police cars, and construction equipment.

On July 1, starting at 3:30 p.m., fREADom Fox Trot will take participants on a journey around downtown Southern Pines as they search for the fox and bird mascots who will be hiding in participating businesses. Completed stamp books can be turned in at the library for a chance to win a prize sponsored by a local business.
