Thomasville, GA - Hundreds of elementary age kids were rewarded for their hard work this morning.
Arthur Atsma captivated the audience this morning with his magic show. It was all part of the summer reading program wrapping-up at the Thomas County Public Library. The program had the biggest participation yet from the community with more than 700 kids signed up. The purpose was to challenge kids to continue reading during the summer months.
"As long as there's literacy happening in the household. Also we know that children like to read the same books over and over and that's okay too. We just want kids to read over the summer so they don't lose so much over the summer months," said Amanda Redker, Thomas County Public Library Children's Director.
Monday will be the last day kids can turn in their reading logs for prizes. This is just one of the programs the library offers during the summer. If you're interested in other events please visit their website at This LINK.
