Tails & Tales

The Marshes of Glynn Libraries 2021 Summer Reading Program kicks off on May 31, 2021.

This summer, we will again offer summer reading programs for both children and teens. The theme for this year’s programs is Tails & Tales.

Once again for 2021, you will use our Beanstack website or their app to log your summer reading and earn rewards. Visit our Beanstack Site to get started.

Pre-Register in Beanstack by April 30 for a chance to win our early registration prize drawing!

Library summer reading programs can prevent the summer learning slide and help your kids be ready for school in the fall.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Georgia Public Library Services.

We will be hosting fun in-person programs and events at the Brunswick Library and St. Simons Library each week. We will also continue our weekly virtual storytime program in June and July. Please check the library website and social media for any COVID-related updates that may impact our events.
