Free Summer Library Programs for children at area libraries start June 5

Registration for the “Build a Better World” summer library program begins Tuesday, May 30, at all Jackson-George Regional Library System locations.

The summer program for children is designed to help kids discover the pleasure of reading and things their community has to offer. Programs this year will help children enjoy community projects, activities, and the fun of reading.

A full schedule of events will encourage children to be active and interested in reading all summer long. All programs are free and bring amazing topics right to the library; special projects, special guests, puppets, story-times, and so much more.

Weekly programs for each of three age groups will include pre-school story-time, elementary school programs, and teen programs.

“Every year more and more children are reached by our programs,” said JGRLS Youth Services Coordinator Bethany Carlisle. “We always have families moving to our area and we encourage them to get a library card and enjoy the fun and learning activities. We hope children and their parents will come and enjoy great programs for all ages.”

A registration card is filled out for each child who registers. Each time the child visits the library, their program activities will be recorded. Certificates of completion will be presented to those who complete an activity card along with a prize bag.

For more information and downloadable schedules, visit the library website or visit a JGRLS library.
