Get Ready to Dive into Summer Reading

Throughout the months of June and July, the Vidalia-Toombs County Library has a program- packed schedule of fun events for all ages.

For the first time since the pandemic began, all of the library programs and performances are in person. Due to the Vidalia library undergoing a large renovation, the main summer performances will be at the Southeastern Technical College auditorium.

“That means you can kick back and relax in a cozy chair while watching Marc Griffiths amaze with his ventriloquist act. Or perhaps you’d like to listen to September Cardiff weave her amazing stories using our Summer Reading theme ‘Oceans of Possibilities’ with some of your friends,” said Librarian Stacey Wright.

Other programs include magician Bill Packard with sleight of hand tricks, and learning about reptiles from Jason Clark with the Reptile Rescue Group. “Along with all the programs we have throughout June and July, we plan to wrap up our summer with an awesome end of summer reading party on July 22 with a performance by juggler Ron Anglin. As you can see, we have a little bit of everything planned for this summer,” Wright said.

Smaller programs, such as Story Time, Lego Club, and the much-loved Cookies & Canvas painting programs will be at the Nelle Brown Memorial Library in Lyons. Since the Lyons library is quite small, some of the programs will require sign-up beforehand due to limited seats. Monitor events on the library’s Facebook page.

Sign-up starts May 21 and can be done in person at the Nelle Brown Memorial Library in Lyons, or through Beanstack online at
