    MONROE-The sun came out for Monroe Free Library's patrons recently on its Annual Family Chalk Night. Despite a day that had threatened rain, it was all sunshine and smiles as almost one hundred members of Monroe families decorated the library sidewalks with colorful chalk drawings. Coinciding with the Evening of the Arts, this event, popular with all ages, had library goers creating an amazing array of animals, plants, and hip typography. This year's Family Chalk Night was the most popular yet. Children begged for extra chalk nights throughout the year. The fun evening is one of many programs planned for this season. "Family Chalk Night is a great kick-off for our Summer Reading Program," said, Rebecca Lynn, head of Children's Services at the Monroe Free Library. "We have something for kids and teens of every age." In addition to the summer reading which Lynn feels is "so important to children's future school success," the library has a variety of storytimes, crafts and shows. "We had psychics for the teens on July 26 and Musical Munchkins on July 30," said Mrs. Lynn,
