The Marshes of Glynn Libraries offers a wide range of programming for all ages. Last Friday was ‘Baby Storytime’ with Maryellen Aiken (left photo) who is paid through a $29,000 grant from the Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation. Ms. Aiken also conducts ‘Every Child Ready to Read’ programs throughout Glynn County, which specifically target HUD communities. The program helps parents prepare their children to learn how to read. Thinking outside the box, library staff are also taking the program to the County Detention Center and will conduct 14 Every Child Ready to Read programs for the inmates.
