It's hard to believe that summer is coming to an end soon. Children are heading back to school, albeit virtual school in most parts of metro Atlanta. The library's summer reading program has now ended and unlike any other year, was completely conducted online. The library continues to hold online programs like Storytime, book clubs, cooking shows, adult storytime and more. We hope you will continue to join us for virtual programs every week (or when your schedule allows - all programs remain posted after airing).
Now we prepare for another first ... our first online-only Library Card Signup Month in September. Another challenge the library staff is already working to meet head-on. Stay tuned to our website and social media for more information on this. If you do no not have a library card or you know someone who doesn't have one, resolve to get one in September. Resolve to share the joy of reading with a friend or family member and encourage them to get their library card online. A library card continues to be the most important card in your wallet. New digital resources like Kanopy, Lynda.com, Creative Bug among others, are bringing more and more FREE digital services to your phone, tablet, computer and laptop.
We want you to continue to #ResolvetoRead for the rest of summer, both online and with a physical book. Remember, libraries are now open for curbside pickup and you can place books on hold for pickup at your local branch. The library continues to be here to help you with all your reading, learning, research needs. Simply visit https://afpls.libanswers.com to speak with a librarian and ask for assistance with your library needs. Don't forget, post your selfies, family photos or maybe even photos of kids reading to their pets with #ResolvetoRead, so we can share your post on our social media channels and on our website.
