This Week @ Gilmer County Library: May 22, 2017 – May 30, 2017
Heath Lee – Library Manager
GCL will be closed on Monday, May 29th for the Memorial Day holiday.
The 2017 Summer Reading Program (SRP) begins May 25th and end on July 31st. This year’s theme is “Build a Better World”, and SRP participation provides great benefits to young children in the form of continued literacy awareness, social involvement, and experiencing new ideas. However, SRP is not solely for youngsters. The SRLS SRP encompasses all ages. We offer SRP activities for young children, teens, and adults. SRLS promotes literacy and continued learning across all age groups. Expect fun times and plenty of programs for all ages this summer. Check our Facebook page in the coming weeks for more SRP details.
