ALBION – Hoag Library capped its summer reading program this evening with an ice cream social on the front lawn.

Local clergy members and Friends of the Library scooped out ice cream and served up toppings to 225 people.

Jack Laskowski, pastor of the First United Methodist Church, is in back putting on a rubber glove and getting ready to take a turn in the lineup.

The library had 400 people participate in the summer reading program. Collectively they read about 1,300 books.
