Summer Reading Programs Around the CSRA

Summer can be busy and full of activity, but it’s there is always time for relaxation and a good book! Libraries across the CSRA are encouraging your kiddos to keep their mind sharp over the summer by participating in their summer reading program. This year’s theme, Libraries Rock, encourages the love of music and reading. Be sure to stop by your local library and pick up your reading log. When finished, exchange your log for cool prizes! 

Augusta-Richmond County Library Summer Reading Program

Richmond County residents can register online and attend various programs at different libraries. 

All participants must complete and return their reading logs to their local Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System branch between May 26 and July 27 for prizes and a chance to win a Kindle Fire! while supplies last. Reading requirements vary depending on the age of the participants.
