CRLS Summer Reading Program

Every summer, Chestatee Regional Library System promotes good reading habits by offering free programs for kids, teens, and adults.  Participating readers can win awesome prizes, and the more you read, the better your chance of winning.  The Summer Reading Program is supported by the Friends of the Lumpkin County Library

The theme for the 2023 Summer Reading Program is “All Together Now”.  The program runs from June 1 through July 31, and registration began on June 1.  Our Summer Reading Program will be online again this year through Beanstack.  Using the Beanstack website or app, patrons can register for our age-specific challenges, log reading, and view prize options.  This great tool also recommends books and allows you to log your reading throughout the year.
