Clay County Library News
The Clay County Library Summer Reading Program is about to begin! Story time at the library will begin on June 8 at 2:00, with special events planned on June 30, when Safari Greg will be here at 2:00, and July 26, when the Science Guy will be here at 2:30.
Also this year, there will be a statewide reading contest for our young readers, with the top 100 readers across the state will be invited to Nashville for dinner and an evening of festivities at the Tennessee Residence. The First Lady’s Read to be Ready Summer Reading Competition is a free summer-long literacy challenge designed to motivate children to read more books and visit their local library over the summer break. Students may read with a family member, friend, or on their own and reading books with a wide variety of subject matter and reading levels is encouraged. Minutes can be self-tracked and self-reported by Friday, July 28 by turning the Reading Log Packet into your local public library.
