Readers of all ages will explore sound and music this summer as the Laurens County Public Library presents “Libraries Rock” during their summer library program.

The 2018 summer reading program is open to preschool children through adults with programs, prize drawings, special guest performers, and more.

A t-shirt will be given to children and teen participants who sign up for the summer reading program. The t-shirts were designed in-house and have been generously provided by the Laurens County Friends of the Library. T-shirts will be available while supplies last. Children are invited to attend all programs.
