Chatham County Public Libraries invite children and teens to participate in the Summer Reading Program “A Universe of Stories” at all Chatham County Public Libraries branches from June 8 through August 17, 2019.

The Summer Reading Program, sponsored by the Friends of the Chatham Community Library, is open to children and teens, ages 2 and up.

All readers who reach the goal will earn a free book and will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing for a $50 Gift Certificate to a local or online bookseller.

The Summer Reading Program kicks off at the Chatham Community Library on June 8, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. with a performance of “Aliens: Escape From Earth!” by Science Tellers. This is a family friendly show for children of ALL ages.
