2017 Summer Reading Program

Readers of all ages will explore how they can make our world a better place this summer as the Miller County – James W. Merritt, Jr. Memorial Library presents “Build a Better World” during their summer library program. Activities will include an interactive science show, a touring theatre group, a puppeteer, and the chance to meet Pete the Cat! All programs will be on Tuesdays in June at 3:30 p.m.

The 2017 Summer Reading Program is open to young people, preschool through teens, with programs and prize drawings.

Families are invited to join by registering and completing reading logs to encourage continued reading during the summer.

Registration for “Build a Better World” begins on May 22, 2017. Those who register will receive a reading log to get them started.

There is a big change to our reading logs this summer! Reading logs will be completed based on the amount of time a child reads, as opposed to how many books a child reads. Each reading log will come with a sticker pack, and a sticker will be placed on the log for every 15 minutes read.

The Summer Reading Program will continue until Friday, July 14, 2017, when all reading logs will need to be returned to be entered to win one of our grand prizes. The library will be giving away three Kindle Fires!

A photo for the newspaper will be taken on Thursday, July 20, 2017, at 3:30 p.m. for those who return a completed log, and the top 10 readers’ names will be listed in the newspaper. We will also have our drawing for our final prizes.

For more information, call the library at 229- 758- 3131 or visit our website, www.swgrl.org

All programs are free of charge.
