CARROLLTON, Ga. – Although, local schools are on the cusp of summer recess students in the area will, no longer, back able to use summer as an excuse to impede their enrichment. The Douglas County Library System is sponsoring their annual summer reading programming for this year on June 2. The county offers programs for teens and children.

The reading program starts on June 2, this year, and end on July 14. The program will begin with a performance by Todd King, a professional juggler at 10:00 a.m.  On the first day of the program, children can come and retrieve their reading log, stickers and literary information sheet. Gift coupons from local businesses will be included in bags available upon registration.

Children are eligible to win different prizes according to how many stickers they accrue.

Every week, the library will hold programs on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. The library offers two, separate, programs for children and teens.

The library also offers a teen program, called “You are Here!” which is a part of a national collaboration that works toward giving teens a voice to express themselves.

The library will be open during its regular hours and teens will be invited to read and partake in other programs during the day.
