Registration is ongoing for the “Prime Time Family Reading Program” offered by the George Coon Public Library.
Rebecca Poole with the library says the program will take place on six Tuesday evenings starting next Tuesday evening, August 23 at 6:30 p.m. She explains that this fun program is for parents, grandparents and children.
