Back to School!

We had an amazing summer here at Athens-Clarke County Library in the Children's Department. We want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who participated in the 2017 Summer Reading Program. We had so many children complete the program and read 50 books or 25 hours this summer and we had over 180 children read 100 books or 50 hours!

School has started back and the Summer Reading Program has ended but there is so much to look forward to. Storytimes are on vacation but will return on August 28. All of us here in the Children's Department hope you enjoy the last bit of summer and we can't wait to see you on August 28!
