2021 Summer reading program


It’s that time of year again! The Americus Library is now accepting applicants for the Summer Reading program. The theme this year is Tails and Tales, stories about our many legged and furry friends. Parents help your children learn more about the different types of animals and fables featuring them. Kids read about whatever animal interests you most and enjoy the variety of activities available to you at your library.

We are all aware and weary of the restrictions Covid-19 imposes on our traditional activities. In response all our activities offered for the Summer Reading program will be grab and go; enjoy fun activities and crafts in the safety of your home.

Our Reading program starts this June, Thursdays from 9-12 AM, so don’t delay signing up. We look forward to hearing and seeing you.

Please stop in to apply or call/email.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten at your local library!

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power? The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books helps your child learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge.
The library has 1000 Book Before Kindergarten packets, or download the 1000 Books  Before Kindergarten app for iPhone and Android.  Come to the library for prizes and/or awards at the 100 book achievements.
