Congratulations to all the graduates in the Class of 2017! Congratulations to all the students in their completion of the school year. Now that it is summertime, plan trips to your local library to participate in the many activities. Activities will help to keep young minds active while being fun.

Here are 3 activities at the Nancy Guinn Library that might interest you:

  • Paws for Reading – On May 4th and May 18th, come and read to Simba, a certified therapy dog, from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in the Youth Services Department.
  • Anime & Manga Club, May 4th – Meet with other anime and manga fans on Thursday from 5pm to 7pm for snacks and discussion. Ages 13 – 18.

The Rockdale County Library system is linked to the Georgia Pines system. That gives you access to an amazing quantity of resources. You’ll find a large variety of books, e-books, audiobooks, and more for kids. Contact the Conyers library to find out how resources can be loaned from another Georgia library if you can’t find it in the Rockdale system.

At the Rockdale County Libraries, there are many activities scheduled throughout the summer. For more information, visit their website at
