Summer Reading 2020 June 1 - July 31

Get ready for a summer full of reading fun for the whole family!

This year, the Athens Regional Library System is taking your summer reading program entirely online! Children, teens and adults can keep track of reading and participate in fun, interactive challenges that will keep everyone engaged all summer long! 

First - Keep track of your reading and participate in exciting activities for all ages with the user-friendly online platform Beanstack. You’ll find lots of fun things to do, including great ideas for exploring the outdoors, trying new things, and making special family memories.  Each age group has its own set of fun benchmarks and challenges for different prizes! 

Next - Visit our regional online events calendar and join us on social media to participate in free virtual programming. Tune in for storytimes, book clubs, cooking demos, and exciting performances by special guests, including flamenco dancing, a virtual petting zoo, and more! Find your library branch’s Facebook page here
