The summer reading program, “Dream Big … Read!” kickoff is set for June 9 at 2 p.m at the library.

If you haven’t signed up for the summer reading program this will be the time to register.

There are still a few days left to shop the Scholastic Book Fair in the Children’s Room. There is a great selection of books for children all ages. The best part is that all items are buy one, get one free.

As part of the Adult Summer reading program, “Between the Covers,” author Richard A. Georgian will be here June 7 at 3:30 p.m. in the Cleveland Bradley Community Room to present “A Day in the Life of a Wild West Show.” Georgian will take the audience behind the scenes on a typical day in a Wild West Show from arrival of the advance crews to the final departure for the next town. All aspects of life on a lot and on the road are explained using knowledge gained from researching his book “Cossacks, Indians and Buffalo Bill.” The presentation includes old black-and-white photographs from Wild West Shows.

Georgian currently resides in Florida and was president of the Gulf Coast Writers Association for three years. He was formerly with U.S. Navy Communications for 22 years and then a senior systems analyst and instructor.

The first Book Club Discussion will be held June 14 at 1 p.m. in the Community Room as Carolyn Harris leads a discussion on Robert Hicks’ novel, “Widow of the South.” All adults are invited to participate in this Adult summer reading event. No registration is needed to attend this Book Club discussion.

The library is partnering with United Way of Bradley County for “Raise Your Hand … Read Day” at the library June 21. There will be community volunteers reading all day long to groups of children to encourage reading. This is a statewide effort to help Tennessee’s children succeed in school and in life. All children are invited to come to the library during the day and hear our volunteers read stories in the Community Room. For additional information or to volunteer, call the library at 472-2163.
