FPL’s Summer Reading Program kicks off with a huge celebration!


Have you picked up your first reading log from the Fayetteville Public Library?

The logs are available now and you can start turning them in at the Summer Reading Program kickoff celebration on Saturday, May 31, from 10am to noon. Whether you’re a kid, teen or adult, you can participate and win some great prizes throughout the summer.

Mad Scientist Steve Cox, magician Doug Krueger, balloon animal artists Jojo and Yurple, and musician Troy Schremmer will perform. Also enjoy the face painting, crafts, free snow cones and bounce house fun. The Discovery van will also be joining the mix.
