The Summer Adventure Challenge designed to encourage reading through the season runs June 1-July 31. “Tails & Tales” is the 2021 summer reading theme with Cobb libraries highlighting animal stories and habitats from across the globe. Supporters for the local program include Georgia Public Library Service and Cobb Library Foundation.

The Kickoff events will be a celebration of summer reading – and everyone is encouraged to wear animal costumes and plan to be engaged in the festive atmosphere, organizers say.

“Each of the four Kickoff events will be unique,” said Mary Wood, Community Engagement Manager. “This will be fun, family events.”
