Summer Reading Club right around the corner

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Twin Lakes Library System kicks off its annual summer reading program next week, offering children, teens and adults diverse activities that celebrate the wonder and creativity of reading. 

A kickoff event is set for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 29. The programming runs from Monday, May 20 through Wednesday, July 17. 

The theme for this year’s programming is “Digging.” Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the Mary Vinson Memorial Library to participate in Dr. Dough Pohl’s science program as part of the kickoff event. There will also be a kickoff party at 3:30 p.m. the same day in the Young Adult Collection of the library. 

“We have a lot of events planned for this summer that are catered to everyone, no matter your age,” said LaToya Davidson, assistant director of Twin Lakes Library System. 

According to Davidson, each club level has a theme that correlates to the main theme, “Digging.” The children’s level theme is “Dig into Reading,” for teens it’s “Beneath the Surface,” and the adult level theme is “Groundbreaking Reads.” 

For children, weekly events will include Wonderful Wednesdays featuring Ken Scott's Dig into Magic Program and Movie Mondays where movies such as “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and “Rise of the Guardians” will be shown. Some teen events include Wacky Wednesdays where teenagers can dig into their imaginations through creative projects such as making a bleached backpack for back to school or making party decorations for an Alice in Wonderland Party. For adults, there will be Monday Night Yoga, Archaeology Night and Movie Night activities. 

The reading club level for children is ages infant to 12, for teens ages 13 to 17 and for adults ages 18 and above. 

Sign-up and registration begins May 20 and will run through July 10. In order to sign up for the Summer Reading Club those interested in participating must have a valid library card. Parents and guardians can choose to use their library cards to sign up or sign up their children if they choose.
