Families who enrolled in the Joseph & Elizabeth Shaw Public Library’s Dig Into Reading summer reading program explored traditions and customs of ancient Egypt during a recent Family Fun Night program.

The families played a game called senet, decorated bookmarks to resemble a shabti, and designed a cartouche necklace to wear using Egyptian hieroglyphics. The program concluded with a mummy wrapping contest between the participating families.

The next Family Fun Night is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. July 15 at the library.

Families pictured (from left): the Magnuson family, the Gallaher family, the Wurster family and the Swatsworth family.
