Meherrin Regional Library urges families to sign up for Summer Reading Program

The Meherrin Regional Library System is gearing up for its annual Summer Reading Program, with registration beginning June 1st and events beginning June 24th.  

This year’s theme is IT’S SHOWTIME AT YOUR LIBRARY. Preschoolers, children, pre-teens, and teens are all able to participate and win a free book by keeping track of the books they read during the summer.

Free events will be held each Thursday beginning June 24th, at 10:30 AM at the Brunswick County Library in Lawrenceville, and at 2:00 PM at the W. E. Richardson Memorial Library in Emporia. This year’s events include shows featuring live animals, ventriloquism, magic, and storytelling. Door prizes will be given out at all events. Participants who read the most books in their age group will win a Top Reader Grand Prize, to be announced at the last program on July 25th.

Monday Movie showings will also be held at each branch beginning June 24th at 10:30 AM at the Brunswick County Library and at 2:00 PM at the Richardson Memorial Library.
