Summer Reading Celebration Returns to East Atlanta Library

By Shannon Sanders

School is almost out, and the fun times of Summer Reading officially begin on June 1.

The East Atlanta Library is thrilled to return to an in-person Summer Reading Kick Off event on Saturday, June 4 from 10:00am to 12:00pm. The Friends of the East Atlanta Library (FEAL) support the summer reading program at the local branch financially, and are participating in this fun day to celebrate reading in person. Bring kids of all ages.

The Inflatable Zoo will entertain at 10:30am with a blend of comedy, music, and magic. Shop the FEAL Children’s Book Sale with all proceeds benefiting the East Atlanta Library. While you’re there, become a member of the FEAL to show your library some love. Enjoy treats, crafts, sidewalk chalk, and more. Look for all the fun throughout the summer for the kids at the library and check out books to get you started. Like the FEAL Facebook page to keep up with the events at www.facebook.com/friendsofeastatlantalibrary.
