Check out what’s happening at the Jackson-George County Library System:
Free summer library programs for children offered on-line!
Children are invited to “Imagine Your Story” at coast libraries this summer with programs for all ages. The Jackson-George Regional Library System summer reading programs begin June 9, on-line from the library website at www.JGRLS.org.
Parents are encouraged to pick up a free summer program kit at libraries that include a full list of on-line programs for children, activity sheets, coloring sheets, and more. Parents may also visit the library website at www.JGRLS.org/childrenSLP and download items as well.
Scheduled programs and events are: Elementary age on Tuesdays at 2 p.m.; Teens on Wednesday at 4 p.m.; and Preschool on Thursdays at 10 a.m., each week. Other scheduled programs are Monday Craft Days on June 15, June 29 and July 6, at 2 p.m.
Watch a different program video each week on the children’s page and review other information and announcements. Sign up for e-mail program reminders, too. Children are also invited to see on-line programs on Facebook at Jackson George Library or on the Library’s YouTube page.
“Because of the current COVID crisis, we have decided to place all programs on-line this year,” said JGRLS Youth Services Coordinator Bethany Carlisle. “We hope parents will encourage children participate in exciting learning activities we have planned. Everyone can participate by picking up a Summer Library Program Kit at their library and have fun,” she said.
