The Georgia Public Library Service annual statewide summer reading program is underway. Public libraries across the state are offering reading logs, bookmarks and stickers to encourage children to read for fun. Kids who participate receive rewards for achieving their reading goals.

We are starting a GPB Book Camp. If you’re looking for great books for your elementary school age children to read this summer, we have some recommendations.

Shannon Tyner, a librarian at the Vinings Public Library in Cobb County helped us find some great books to get your child engaged in reading.

GPB's Ellen Reinhardt also talked to Tyner about whether technology is helping get children to read more, or is distracting them from reading.
