Readers of all ages can begin signing up for the Gwinnett County Public Library Summer Reading Program. This years theme is Build a Better World.

Reading for fun builds literacy skills, expands vocabulary, and helps kids explore their growing interests and expand their horizons. Join the library for programs including crafts, movies, storytimes, and special guest performers all summer long.

The Summer Reading Program will go digital with the launch of Beanstack, a customized online portal where customers can access weekly book recommendations, keep track of reading activities, earn digital badges, and more.

Kids and teens will receive a Certificate of Recognition and have a chance to win prizes including a free book of their choice, tickets to a Gwinnett Braves game, free Laser Quest play, a $75 LEGO gift card or even a Chromebook laptop computer. Prizes vary by age and are available while supplies last.

Adults can sign up for the Adult Summer Reading Challenge and enter to win a gardening gift basket that includes a book, garden hose, fertilizer, and an assortment of garden tools. Pick up an Adult Summer Reading Challenge sheet at your local branch, fill in as many answers as possible, and return the completed sheet to the branch for your chance to win.
