Summer reading program kicking off at 2 area libraries

Posted: Updated:

Local and state organizations are teaming up to get you kids excited about reading over the summer.

Georgia's Path2College 529 Plan is kicking off its summer reading program at two area libraries.

It's called "Fizz-Boom Save for College" and it's a statewide initiative to get kids reading when they're on summer break and to encourage parents and caretakers to save for their kids' college.

All you have to do is sign up, then in a random drawing, four regional winners will get more than $1,500 and a grand prize winner will get more than $5,500.

There's also an incentive for the libraries - they win cash too if the winner is from their library.

The first kickoff event is at the Brunswick Glynn County Library at 10:30 a.m. The second event is at the Bull Street Library at 3:30 p.m.

There will be arts and crafts for kids at the kickoff events and they're both free and open to the public.
