The Mountlake Terrace Library plans to host a summer reading wrap-up party Wednesday, with a free ice cream social, family-friendly movie and the sealing of a time capsule honoring 50 years of the Sno-Isle Library System.
Items going into the time capsule were suggested throughout the summer by community members who entered a drawing for a free book. The drawing is scheduled to take place at the party.
Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. at the library at 23300 58th Ave. W.
The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Mountlake Terrace Library. For more information, call 425-776-8722.
