By Fulton County Library System May 31, 2020

The Fulton County Library System’s Summer Reading Program is going online in 2020!  The Fulton County Library System has a number of fun and engaging ways for readers of all ages to get involved with this year's program which will run from June 1st through August 1st.

This year's theme is, "Imagine Your Story" and FCLS wants to imagine that story with each and every reader in Fulton County.  To register for summer reading, visit the Fulton County Library and get started right away!

Each week, the library will host a full week of programming that will include everything from Virtual Storytimes for Children and Adults, to Digital Library tutorials and Author Talks.

  • Monday, June 1st - Join Gina Hughes from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Facebook Live for a musically themed storytime.
  • Tuesday, June 2nd - Join Anna Giles from Dad’s Garage Theatre Company on Facebook Live for interactive theatrical storytelling.

  • Friday, June 5th - Join U.S. Congresswoman Lucy McBath on Facebook Live to celebrate a summer of imagining your story.

Fulton County Library System Director, Gayle Holloman shared, “With all the changes affecting traditional services amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library was determined to find a meaningful way to produce a Summer Reading Program and make it engaging for all ages.  We are thrilled with the work our staff has done to create a wonderful array of programs that can be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of home. We invite you to Imagine Your Story."
