Libraries offer FREE Summer Programs for all ages!

The Jackson-George Regional Library System will begin registration for the Children’s Summer Library Program on Tuesday, May 28, at all branch libraries. Find on Facebook @JacksonGeorgeLibrary.

Young people everywhere share a passion for play. This summer, all branches of the Jackson-George Regional Library System will host a variety of free programs that will explore music, instruments, games, and dance movement through books, activities, art projects, and more.

In addition to enjoying playing together, your patrons will gain knowledge and understanding of various music and fine arts, including some they’ve never heard of before. They’ll have the opportunity to challenge themselves, try new things, and work together to set records.

Fitness and music programs and events will give children of all ages the opportunity for hands-on learning. Every child, whether a sports fan or not, is sure to enjoy this summer’s program.
