Summer Reading Registration Has Begun!
Follow the Link for a List of Events Scheduled at Your Local ABBE Library!

Did you know that students can lose up to three months of skills if they don't read at least 6 books over the summer? The summer reading program is a free program full of educational experiences and incentives that specifically targets the "summer slide."

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a new program sponsored by the Friends of Aiken County Public Library that encourages parents and caregivers to read with young children before they enter kindergarten. Register at the first floor desk, track your reading, and earn rewards along the way!

Children can visit the library after every 100 books to receive a sticker and these other fun rewards:

  • Child's name on the 1,000 Books display
  • Read to our giant stuffed bear, Mr. Teddy
  • Glitter maraca
  • Book bag
  • Child's name in their favorite library book
  • Free paperback book
  • Completion certificate & intercom announcement in the library

Any child who has not yet entered kindergarten is eligible for the program.
