This Week at Gilmer County Library: June 20, 2018 – June 27, 2018


Heath Lee – Library Manager

The 2018 Summer Reading Program (SRP) is HERE. This year’s theme is “Libraries Rock!” SRP is super beneficial for all children. It is a great way to beat the dreaded Summer Slide by continually offering literacy related programs, social events, and experiencing new concepts. However, SRP is not solely for youngsters. SRP activities are for all ages. Expect fun times and plenty of programs for all ages this summer. Check our Facebook page in the coming weeks for full SRP details.
