Truck Time lets kids explore

Two-year-old Nova Pritchett plays around in a garbage truck during Truck Time Literacy Night at Emily Fowler Library on Friday. Children’s book author Katy Bebee was present to launch her new book from Disney-Hyperion,” Thunder Trucks,” which came out Tuesday. Children met the author, attended a truck-themed story time and participated in creating truck crafts. A portion of the parking lot was blocked off for all types of trucks that kids could touch, climb on and explore — from FEMA’s mobile command unit to construction trucks and emergency vehicles.
