NEW PORT RICHEY — Families formed an assembly line of fun during an event at New Port Richey Public Library. About 20 children first built their own cardboard cars as an arts and crafts project, Jessica Meredith, youth services librarian, said. Participants could create their own “car” out of cardboard boxes and other supplies. They made license plates, tires and steering wheels out of paper plates, headlights out of cut-up pool noodles and items from other crafts. Once the vehicles rolled off the assembly line, the children “parked” their cars drive-in theater style. They munched popcorn as the library showed the animated hit movie “Turbo.”
“This event was part of our busy summer reading program,” Meredith commented. “Cute” is the only description for the event, she said.
