Forsyth County library system announces magical finale to reading program

With just a week left of summer vacation, the Forsyth County Public Library system has announced a finale to its summer reading program with two magical performances by entertainer Ken Scott at the Hampton Park and Cumming libraries.

Scott will perform Thursday at the Hampton Park Library at 11 a.m. and at the Cumming Library at 7 p.m. The release states that both performances are free and open to all ages.

A library news release cautions patrons that July 28 is the last day to register for their Summer Reading Fun program. The program will end on Aug. 5 and Grand prize winners will be announced on Aug. 6.

According to the release, the system received “record-breaking” participation in its Summer Reading Fun program this year.

“This summer, they came, they saw, they read,” said Tracy Walker, Forsyth County Public Library Programming Manager in the release. “It was such a successful summer, with thousands of patrons registering for our Summer Reading Fun program and tracking all their books and activities online.”

This year prizes for the program included several bikes donated by Zaxby’s, fly fishing lessons by Bowman Fly Fishing and e-readers donated by the FCPL Friends & Advocates.

“The library is grateful to all our generous community sponsors for supporting literacy and helping to make this year’s Summer Reading Fun possible for readers of all ages,” Walker said.
