Summer reading registration booming at libraries

All four branches of the Coweta County Library System are garnering exceptional summer reading registration statistics.

In just the first two weeks into the program, the system had as many registrants as there were for the whole summer of 2012, said Coweta Library System Director Jimmy Bass. 

“Patrons should not fear, however, as staff is ordering even more prizes to keep up with demand,” Bass said. “Every reader that completes the program is entered into the grand prize drawing for a chance to win a Kindle HD (adults and teens) and a Nabi Tablet (children). This is in addition to many other smaller prizes that will be awarded by library staff.”

The last week of May saw visits from Puppet Guy Lee Bryan, Juggler Todd Key and the Archeobus. Programs like these and the Summer Reading Contest, which includes awards for all ages, will continue through the end of July.

There is still plenty of time for everyone to register at any branch of the Coweta Library System.

For more information, call your favorite library or visit the library’s website at www.cowetapubliclibrary.org.

In addition to the reading contests and the arrival of e-books at the system, each branch is offering plenty of entertainment through July as musicians, artists, puppeteers, magicians and storytellers present weekly programs at all libraries. 

The Summer Reading Program for Coweta Libraries will run until July 27. The grand prize winners will be announced on July 29.
