"Summer Reading Program coordinator Geneva Mixon mixed some magic ingredients and created frothing foam to the delight of the students. The program ended last Tuesday after six weeks of fun activities."
"The program is free. No registration is required and volunteers work hard to engage the children in fun activities. The Summer Reading Program should be at the top of parents' list of things to do next summer."

My son has participated in the summer reading program for teens. He loves it. It really encourages him to keep reading over the summer break and he loves keeping track of the books he has finished and also writing reviews for the library for other kids to see. It is a great program! KL
