Visit your local Beaufort County Library branch to participate in this year’s Summer Reading program: Oceans of Possibilities. The program kicked off June 1 and runs through July 30. Get ready for eight weeks-worth of reading, learning, and everlasting memories. 

Visit any branch library to pick up a paper reading log, set your personalized daily minutes of reading goal (personally, my child’s intended goal is 30 minutes of reading a day), and stick to it.

The Beaufort County Library celebrates children and books every day but May takes on special significance as the Children’s Book Council hosts Children’s Picture Book Month.  It’s the perfect time to stop by the library or bookmobile nearest you to check out some old favorites and discover some newer ones.  

Can’t physically get to the library? Visit our website at and download some books to share with the child in your life.

After nearly two years of hybrid learning, the Savannah Music Festival’s popular Musical Explorers program will officially return to in-person concerts for local K-2 students and teachers on Monday, May 2 at the Trustees Theater, located at 216 E. Broughton St. 




Spring, spring is coming soon,

Grass is green and flowers bloom,

Birds returning from the South,

Bees are buzzing all about,

Leaves are budding everywhere,

Spring, spring is finally here.

The weather is warming up, the flowers and trees are beginning to bloom with beautiful radiant colors. It’s time to get out the soil, pail, and shovel to start the garden. Kids, be sure to ask mom or dad for some seeds to plant flowers or vegetables. While you wait for them to grow, try reading some of these colorful books:

“Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.” 

- From Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White

February is the perfect month to celebrate friendship and love. It is often cold outside and snuggling up with your child and a good book can be such a comfort, especially if they have had a bad day.
