Nerf Wars Pizza Party, Reading fun: Five things to know in North Smithfield this week

Congratulations to John Hanlon of North Smithfield on receiving his Eagle Scout award.

Reading is fun

North Smithfield Public Library is encouraging parents to introduce their children to the Pin Traders Program, which promotes reading for enjoyment.

Children borrow and read a book from the selection of titles recommended by Youth Services Librarian Renee Bichan. When the item is returned, the child receives a special pin that corresponds with that book. The program encourages reading and serves as an introduction to new and old titles covering various styles. For more information, visit or call 767-2780.
