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

By Michelle Schwab, Peachtree City-Fayetteville-Newnan publisher June 6, 2024

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!  

 This year’s theme is “Adventure Begins at Your Library,” and libraries in Fayetteville, Peachtree City and Newnan will offer a variety of beloved in-person traditions such as puppet shows, story times, and more as well as prizes for meeting reading goals.

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