DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County Public Library is aiming to keep students busy during their school holiday with its summer reading program.

This year's theme is Libraries Rock and will feature weekly performers and entertainers along with games that keep students entertained.

A new addition is that the program is also available online for students to track their reading and earn points and prizes when the school year starts up.

The goal is to make sure students keep progressing in their education during the summer time.

"The goal is to keep everyone, especially our young people, reading during the summer so they don't fall behind in their reading when they go back to school," said Assistant Director Wanda Brown.

Over 600 students are enrolled and the library is accepting more.

The program will run until July 21.
