Free summer library programs for children offered on-line!

It’s that time of year when your Jackson-George Regional Library System celebrates summer library programs. This year, most programs will be virtual and presented online at www.JGRLS.org.

The “Tails and Tales” reading program for children is designed to help kids discover the pleasure of reading. Programs this year will help children discover our animal population locally along with research, animal health, and nature. Programs begin June 8th.

Online events will encourage children to be active and interested in reading and checking out books at their library. A take-home kit is available at all branches. All program videos will bring amazing topics right to your home; special guests, story-times, special animals and so much more.

Weekly programs for each of three age groups will include; pre-school storytime, grade-school programs, and 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 children and their parents will enjoy great programs for all ages.”

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.

For more information, program videos, and downloadable schedules, visit the library website at www.jgrls.org or visit a library near you.
