πŸ“– Library Summer Reading Programs for Children, Teens & Adults

By Michelle Schwab, Macaroni Kid Peachtree City, Fayetteville, Newnan May 13, 2022

It’s no secret that kids who read during the summer months fare better on fall reading tests than kids who don't. A great way to keep them reading is to participate in a Summer Reading Program at a library in Fayette and Coweta Counties!  

Readers of all ages will dive into the ocean depths this summer as libraries in Fayetteville, Peachtree City and Newnan present “Oceans of Possibilities” during their summer library program. Activities will include performers, games, ocean-related arts and crafts, science and engineering experiments, and more.

Registration for the Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading programs kicks off on different days at local libraries. See below for details.
