Statham Public Library Invites Young Readers to ‘Dream Big’
The summer reading program uses fun programming and books to encourage local children to exercise their imaginations.
Armed with the tagline “Dream Big — Read!,” the Statham Public Library kicked off its summer reading program earlier this week with a magic show featuring the talents of Keith Karnok.
The fun continues throughout the month of June with special programming Tuesday mornings geared toward encouraging kids to open their minds and open a book.
Remaining programming for Statham’s summer reading program includes:
- Tuesday, June 12: Statham Elementary School’s “Mr. C," Ian Canalis, makes an appearance from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Kids will delight in his wild and crazy improv.
- Tuesday, June 19: Beloved storyteller Renee Hanna appears from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Join her as she takes the kids on a journey through their imaginations, making them feel as though they are a part of the story she is telling.
- Tuesday, June 26: Queen Glitter waves her magic wand from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Be there when the queen takes children off into story land and encourages them with reading.
