Library hosting summer reading events

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Story time doesn't need to be strictly at bedtime.

On Monday and June 17, the Gwinnett County Public Library is hosting a Preschool Storytime for children 5 years old and younger.

At 10:30 a.m., children with their parents can be a part of the stories, songs and activities planned for the morning. Each scheduled week will feature a different Dig Into Reading Summer program theme.

The reading series returns on July 8 and 15.

For the summer, there are other reading events for children and teens at the other branches in Gwinnett County. Teens have a chance to learn how to make candy sushi, watercolor silhouettes and 3-D art. There are also comic book workshops, an eBook tutorials and a Nintendo Wii gaming events.

The children have a list of events that they can attend. On Saturdays, there are doggies tales at multiple branches, where the young ones practice their reading skills with pups.

If your kids like dirt, Abby the Archaeobus, a mobile classroom from The Society for Georgia Archaeology, stops by the branches to teach about Georgia's history, take a tour on the bus and participate in activities based on digging up the past.
