Kids celebrate summer reading

Benjamin Lotts helps his sons James-Lee, left, and Jon-Lucas write book reviews Saturday of stories they read during the celebration of the summer reading program at the Carnegie Library.

Roughly 50 elementary students showed up Saturday morning at the Carnegie Library to hang out with Newnan Mayor Keith Brady. 

It capped a celebration of reading they had done between the school years as part of Mayor Brady Rocks Summer Reading. Each participant submitted a diary tallying the time spent reading which was used in a drawing for door prizes. 

The kids also created their own comic books, played Scrabble, wrote book reviews and danced during the two-hour celebration. The six best reviews as judged by Walter Jones, publisher of The Newnan Times-Herald, received NTH gift bags, and their reviews will be published later on the Opinion page.
