What is the Mayor’s Summer Reading Club?

The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club is a program for children ages birth to five and their families that take place in locations throughout the city of Atlanta over the summer. The program designates a city- wide book choice for infants and for children ages 2-4 to share with families at no cost to them. Throughout the summer, libraries, museums, farmers’ markets, and other institutions in Atlanta will hold “book club reads” to model research based methods of reading books with children and will host enrichment events based upon the stories. The books will come to life as children enjoy arts and crafts activities, drama exercises, and other hands on activities designed to make the language in the stories meaningful to children.

What are the program goals?

The reading club will utilize public-private partnerships to:

  • Continue building vocabulary and reading skills in children birth to five over the summer
  • Coach parents on how to better engage with their kids around reading
  • Improve reading and literacy rates among children in the city of Atlanta
Get Involved as a Community Partner Get Involved as a Parent



The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club is led by GEEARS in conjunction with community partnerships and the Mayor’s office.
