The Roswell Library, which is part of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System, encourages kids and teens to participate in its upcoming summer reading program.  

All children can read for prizes as well as to take part in events offered throughout the summer.

Starting June 1, kids and teens can register to receive a reading log. Parents can even log activities with their babies and toddlers. Those completing their logs by Aug. 1 will receive various prizes, including Chick-fil-A sandwich coupons and an entry in the end-of-summer drawing for a Kindle Fire.

Families can attend a kick-off on Tuesday, June 3 from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. featuring face painting, arts & crafts, storytelling, balloons and a clown.

During the summer children can register to take part in the “Fizz, Boom, Read!” programs including hands-on science, magic shows, comic book drawing, puppets, My Reptile Guys, music, LEGOs, and of course, reading.  Call or visit the children’s department to register for programs.

Teens ages 11-17 can take part in the “Spark a Reaction” themed events including entrepreneurship, juggling, comic book drawing, jewelry making and a visit from BIOBUS. Call or visit the reference desk to register. 

The Roswell Library summer reading programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Roswell Library and Chick-fil-A at Roswell Town Center. All programs are free and open to the public.  

The Roswell Library is located at 115 Norcross Street. For more information, call 770-640-3075 or go to Friends of Roswell Library's website and click on Programs.
