The days are growing longer, the temperature is rising and around Atlanta it’s time to begin making plans for summer adventures for the whole family. Why not begin at your library? From babies and children to teens and adults, everyone is invited to participate in the many exciting summer reading activities at your branch of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System! The program runs from June 1 - August 1, 2013, so events are already underway!
This year's theme for children is Dig Into Reading, perfect for encouraging young readers to expand their knowledge of subjects such as archaeology, geology, gardening, and much more. For our teen readers the theme is Beneath The Surface. Delve deeper into your imagination and explore other worlds through books! Both children and teen readers will be eligible for prizes, coupons, certificates, and a grand prize drawing after completing the program. This year's grand prize is a Kindle Fire, so you don't want to miss out on your chance to win! And there's something for the adults as well. Displays, book lists and programs for adult library users highlight the 2013
theme of Groundbreaking Reads, so you're sure to find something for the whole family this summer at your library. For more information about our summer reading program visit our website or call your local librarian.
