Summer Reading: “Imagine Your Story”
This year’s summer reading theme is “Imagine Your Story.” It was chosen to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story.
Have fun with Summer Reading
It’s Summer Reading time at your public library!
This year, it’s more important than ever for kids to keep reading over summer break. Did you know that kids who don’t practice reading during the summer can lose up to three months of reading ability?
This summer, Georgia Public Library Service is providing online access to Beanstack to all 408 public libraries in Georgia!
Beanstack lets you track reading, participate in challenges, and engage with fun literacy activities. Many libraries also are planning fun virtual programs in June and July. You can check with your local library to see their schedule and learn how to sign up for Beanstack.
Prevent the summer learning slide, and help your child be ready for school in the fall, through the Summer Reading Program at your local library.

- have access to fun learning experiences;
- can make new friends, and more!
