Editor's note: The performance location in Richmond Hill has been changed. The performance will now be at 2 p.m. May 30 at the Richmond Hill United Methodist Church instead of at Richmond Hill Elementary School. 

“Libraries Rock!” is the theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Program, which takes place in public libraries all summer long and begins May 30 at both public libraries in Bryan County.

The first of these free performances will be Magical Educator Chad Crews with his program “Reading Rocks!” at 10:30 a.m. at the Bryan County Elementary School Cafeteria, 250 Payne Drive in Pembroke and at 2 p.m. at the Richmond Hill United Methodist Church, 9050 Ford Ave. in Richmond Hill.

Performance locations will be held offsite this year to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend.

Crews has been performing educational programs for libraries and schools for over a decade. His “Reading Rocks!” program will include a live snake as well as routines, magic tricks and stories emphasizing the “Libraries Rock” theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program. 

In addition to free performances throughout the summer, the Summer Reading Program includes incentives to read books during summer vacation from school.
