Summer Reading Programs Begin Friday, May 27, 10:30

On Your Mark, Get Set . . . READ!

This year's Summer Reading programs get a real kick start this year with a special program with Lindsay McCurley from the EMH Wellness Center.  Lindsay will combine dance, movement and good information about healthy eating in a fun and exciting class that begins at 10:30 a.m. 

Friday morning programs will continue through June and much of July, with the final program set for July 15.  Children of all ages and accompanying adults are invited to join us for these entertaining weekly programs. 

Something New This Year --

For 5 of the 8 weekly programs we will hold 2 sessions -- one at 10 a.m. and a second identical session at 11:30 .m.  The hope here is that having 2 sessions will avoid some of the overcrowding we have experienced over the past few years. You may attend either session. We anticipate the day camps will come to the 10 o'clock shows so they can be back at camp in time for lunch. There will be 2 shows on the following dates:  June 3, June 10, Jne 24, July 8 and July 15.  On June 17 and July 1 there will one show beginning at 10:30 a.m.   

For more information about the scheduled programs, drop by the Library to pick up a schedule, email us for a copy ( or give us a call at 706-283-5375. 



Toddler Time Off to a Great Start

Tuesdays at 10:30 

If you have a child 4 years old or younger, make plans to bring him or her to a fun-filled program every Tuesday at 10:30.  Children and their caregivers will experience age-appropriate stories, fingerplays, songs, games and simple crafts.  

This new program just started in May, and the response has been great!  There's no need for reservations -- just come and enjoy a half hour of participative fun. For more info, give the Library a call at 706-283-5375.

Monday Classes for Older Kids

Summer vacation means that Investigation Station Classes return for children in grades 3 and up.  These weekly classes begin on Monday June 6 and will continue through July 11, although there will be no class on July 4. 

Each activity-oriented session offers an opportunity to do things using information they learn through reading. Sessions may focus on science, art, crafts, games, outdoors or other special experiences.  There's no charge for attending, and reservations are not required.

Give us a call at 706-283-5375 if you have questions.

Lego-Palooza Begins Thursday, June 2

Kids of all ages are invited to come play with the library's lego collection every Thursday at 3 p.m.  This is a great time to encourage your child to let his/her imagination run wild and see what can be created!

There's lots of blocks as well as some special kits for older children who want to build more complicated things. 

This is an hour of unstructured play time, and an adult is expected to accompany each child. (Some even enjoy playing with the blocks themselves!)  Questions?  Check out the Library's Summer Reading Calendar which is available at the Library, or give us a call at 706-283-5375.
