Children's Programs

Books in Library

Children's programming throughout the system includes story time, puppet shows, arts & crafts workshops, and

special events like Read Across America, and Summer Reading Program.

Story Time

The Bartram Trail Libraries offer age-appropriate story times for children preschool age and older. Story Times are stimulating, interactive and fun! They feature stories from books, stories to act out, puppet shows, songs, flannel board stories, videos and arts & crafts sessions.

Story Time is available system-wide throughout the year, but schedules vary from branch to branch. For more information, visit or contact your local branch.

Summer Reading Program

The state of Georgia's Summer Reading Program encourages children and young adults to read for fun even when school is out! Program participants read to earn fun rewards, attend story time and craft programs, and enjoy special events like kick-off day parties, performances from magician, musician, and even animal educators as well as awards programs.  This year,  participants of all ages can sign up at Beanstack or using the beanstack app. Reading programs are available for all age groups including adults!

The Summer Reading Program will return to in-person programming this year! Stop by the library to receive a full schedule of events.

Our libraries are proud to offer special events for children of all ages during this momentous annual event.
