Get Ready for the Summer Reading Program

The joy of summer reading is about to descend!

We’re preparing for all of the prizes, all of the stories, all of the…experiments!

That’s right; the theme for this year’s extravaganza is SCIENCE!

Summer Reading Program will start registration May 27th, the day after school gets out.  Prizes are awarded every time your child or teen brings in his/her sheet noting that more books have been read.  The more you read and the more times you come to the library, the more prizes you will earn!

Prizes are awarded for all age groups:

  • Ages 0-8 will be awarded after each 1st, 10th, 25th, and 50th book.  And don’t forget books read during story time count toward your child’s total number of books.
  • Tweens (ages 9-12) will receive special prizes after each 1st, 3rd, 9th, and 15th books.
  • Teens (ages 13-17) will receive prizes after every 1st, 3rd, 6th, and 10th book.

In addition to the prizes awarded, there will be lots of special programs. Our youngest children will enjoy story times and coloring. Our 5-8 year olds will have crafts and experiment sessions. The tweens will enjoy making slime and other related science activities. The teens will compete in Catching Fire survival challenges (held at Nola Brantley in Warner Robins) and participate in Dr. Atom’s robotics laboratory. Everyone is invited to experience Dr. J. presenting his Think Big program of experiments about the world around us. Each library is different so make sure to check the forthcoming calendars to discover what each individual branch offers.

You won’t want to miss it!

See you this summer at the library.
