A full schedule of events will inspire students to be active and interested in reading all summer long. All summer programs bring dozens of free programs and events right to your neighborhood; puppets, story-times, special guests and so much more - guaranteed to entertain young and old alike.

Weekly programs for each of three age groups will include; pre-school storytime, grade-school programs, and suspense themed "Own the Night" 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 kids and their parents will come and enjoy great programs for all ages."

A reading record is filled out for each child who registers. Each time the child visits the library, the books he or she has read will be recorded on their own reading record. Certificates of completion will be presented to those who meet reading goals.

When children are free to choose their own reading materials, wonderful things happen. Often children who are resistant to reading books during the school year find a topic of interest and read about things they like over the summer.

Parents of younger children are urged to enroll their preschool children in the Read-To-Me programs and to attend the regular story time activities at the libraries. A wide selection of new picture books are available that parents can select to read to their children.

The Jackson-George Regional Library System is comprised of eight branch libraries serving the two counties and surrounding areas. All locations provide free access to a large collection of books, DVDs, audio books on CD and tape, and music CDs, Internet and free WiFi; research databases, newspapers, and magazines. The library system branches continue to serve as cultural centers, presenting the highest quality programming, exhibits, and free events for children, teens and adults of all ages.
