Special to the Miner

The San Manuel Library Summer Reading Program started off with a visit from Indiana Bones. On Wednesday, June 5, at 1 p.m., Mike McCartney, a traveling entertainer also known as Indiana Bones, performed for a crowd of 47 people in the BHP Conference Center with his lively storytelling.

Indiana Bones played music as the crowd filed in and he cracked his whip several times to the surprise and delight of the children in attendance. He set the scene for his story and described travels deep in the jungle. Indiana Bones told a tale of danger in search of the Crystal Skull, in which he and his sidekick encountered pesky monkeys, man-eating crocodiles, jaguars, and dart-shooting guardians. Various fossils were shown in the next part of his story with the excitement of the children growing as each ancient dinosaur fossil he pulled out of his bag grew larger. For his last tale of a dragon and a witch, Indiana Bones produced a dragon puppet named Draco whose silly antics had both children and adults laughing.

Summer activities are ongoing at the library and include movie matinees, coloring contests, and crafts. For more information contact the San Manuel Library at 385-4470.
