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 is Oceans of Possibilities!
