Joined by one of the city’s big trucks, Elkhart Mayor Tim Neese will join in the summer reading fun at 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 12. The hour-long program will take place downtown, 300 S. Second St.
Mayor Neese was elected as the city’s executive in November 2015, following six terms in the Indiana General Assembly and about 10 years representing his city council district.
In celebration of “Build a Better World,” the library’s 2017 summer reading program, the mayor will read the classic “Horton Hears a Who” and talk about his work with the city. Kids will be able to see the street department truck, and GeoTrekkers will be able to get a passport stamp.
