“Summertime reading is so important for continued learning between school years,” Gwinnett County Public Library Executive Director Nancy Stanbery-Kellam said in a news release. “The library’s Summer Reading Program helps parents keep their kids on track while celebrating the adventure and imagination that is a part of the summer vacation experience! With support from so many generous donors, we hope to include as many kids as possible in all the excitement.”
This year, $400,000 worth of prizes and incentives have been donated by local businesses to encourage young readers. Also, kids and teens can enjoy free programs, activities, and a chance to enter the 529 Plan for College sweepstakes now through August.
Registration for the library’s Summer Reading Program is available online now and in all 15 branch locations. To learn more about the Summer Reading Program, visit www.gwinnettpl.org, call (770) 978-5154, or find the Gwinnett Library on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.
