The Friends of the Library are happy to voice their support of the Summer Reading Program at the Appling County Library. Children of all ages may sign up to receive weekly prizes just for reading books this summer. There is no minimum or maximum number of books, just delight as long as children are reading.
Each week, when they return books, children may enter their names at the library for the grand prize drawing. Toys, movie tickets and gift certificates are among the many prizes that will be awarded at the end of the program, July 19.
The Friends of the Library would also like to invite everyone to attend the special programs this summer. There are exciting events planned weekly such as a puppet show, June 3, the reptile show on June 26 at 11:00 a.m. and a magician on Monday, June 30. Patrons may get a complete listing of events at the library.
In addition, two “special” programs will take place in June. Come out and meet Rhonda Trull, a Christian author, who wrote “Maximum Voltage,” a book about reaching the full potential that was divinely purposed for each person’s life. Rhonda will be at the Appling County Library on Saturday, June 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., to meet with the public.
Also, the Friends of the Library are very excited to showcase “Fiddlin’ Dan the Mountain Man” for an hour long presentation on Wednesday, June 25 at 4:00 p.m. The public is invited to come and listen to Dan, as he fiddles, rhymes and encourages the audience to participate in singing patriotic songs, as well as an old fashioned, “Jug Band”. Lots of fun is in store for you at the library this summer!
