Summer Reading programs in full swing at library

The J. Joel Edwards Public Library offers a full schedule of programming for all ages over the summer, including teens on Mondays, preschool story time on Tuesdays, Make and Take Crafts on Wednesdays, Toddler Time on Thursdays, school-age children’s programs and adult events on Thursday evenings.

Dave Holland of Atlanta’s Beatin’ Path Rhythm kicked the library’s summer reading program off in style on Saturday, June 3. Dave is a dynamic performer, teaching artist, and interactive rhythm facilitator. As founder of Beatin’ Path Rhythm Events and Interactive Rhythm, Dave promotes community, teamwork and diversity through rhythm based events. Dave concluded his program with a reading of his new book, The Llama Who Rocks in Her Polka Dot Socks and provided the library with two complimentary copies.

The public are invited to grab a copy of the summer calendar at the library and to follow the J. Joel Edwards Public Library on Facebook to keep up with the plethora of upcoming summer programs for all ages.

The library’s team includes manager Rosemary Bunn, assistant manager Helen Carter, youth services Ricka Burke, Alla Drake and Cami Hoopes. They all worked together to transform the library’s meeting room into a whole new universe for the summer reading program. For more call the library during regular hours at 770-567-2014.
