George Wolf Elementary School strives to keep its students learning during the long months of summer.
First-grade teacher Jen Horn came up with the idea for an outdoor library, where students had the opportunity to donate and borrow books each week while enjoying snacks and drinks with classmates.

Borough leaders attended and supported the event.
The block party was to raise resources for two distinct groups: Bath Volunteer Fire Department and Dream Come True.

The suggestion became reality Aug. 2 when, instead of voting on the revised apartment ordinance, Northampton Borough Council tabled the decision until September.
The ordinance regarding apartment inspections was first adopted in May with a one-vote margin. It was vetoed in June by Mayor Thomas Reenock, then revised and back before council last week.
The debate and postponement continue, as the issue is now tabled until council’s Sept. 6 meeting. To overturn the veto, the ordinance needs a majority vote plus one.
