Richmond County residents of all ages are invited to participate in the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System’s (ARCPLS) “Build a Better World” 2017 Summer Reading Program. The program begins on May 20 and lasts through July 28. Stay tuned to this page for sign up information for the summer reading program! Participants will be able to sign up onilne and download reading logs or sign up at their local library branch and receive a paper reading log.  Once participants complete their reading logs, they can return them to their local branch. Children and young adults 18 years and younger will receive special prizes for completing their reading logs, including tickets to a special Augusta Greenjackets game on August 4, 2017. All participants who turn in a reading log will be entered into a drawing for one of three Kindle Fires (one for children, one for young adults, and one for adults).

ARCPLS has a variety of exciting FREE activities planned for all ages during the Summer Reading Program. The Junior Junior Prom for young adults 11-17 years old will be held on June 2 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Headquarters Library (823 Telfair Street, Augusta). Tweens and teens (and parents, too!) are invited to put on their best outfits and enjoy a fun night of dancing and other activities at this annual celebration of reading. To RSVP, call 706-434-2036 or email outreach@arcpls.org. The family-friendly Summer Reading Kickoff will be held on Saturday, June 3, from 11 am to 2 pm at the Appleby Branch Library (2260 Walton Way, Augusta). Families are invited to come and enjoy hands-on activities with a five senses theme, magic tricks by Magician John Browning, and free snacks provided by Lanier Meats.
