June 2018

The Lexington County Public Library is hosting their annual Summer Reading Program for kids of ALL ages. This year’s theme is “Libraries Rock!” and provides a great opportunity to challenge yourself and discover books that can help you find a new beat.

The Friends of the Lexington Main Library will host a FREE Kick-Off Party on Wednesday, June 6 from 3pm - 6pm. Activities include inflatables, games, crafts and music. Summer Reading Program shirts and tote bags will be on sale while supplies last.

There are several categories including: Early Literacy (0 - 5), Kids (grades K - 5), Teens (grades 6 - 12) and Adults (ages 18+).

Children and teens can earn treats from Chipotle, Bojangles' and Chick-fil-A, as well as a book, Sum­mer Reading medal and ticket to a Lexington County Blowfish Baseball game. Don’t forget that Summer Reading is fun for the entire family. Adult participants can log their reading, which will be entered to win weekly prizes at their local branch.

Simply log the number of minutes you spend reading and you’ll be notified when it’s time to pick up your prize at the library. Logging forms are available at the library to record minutes or titles of books you read this summer. Prizes will be awarded from Monday, June 11 to Saturday, August 18.
