PINSON — The Pinson Public Library will hold its summer reading kickoff event Saturday, May 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Pinson’s summer reading program is June 2 through July 19. There will be 60 different programs this year, and kids will learn about music, art, animals, science, the library and their community.
For teens and adults the library will have book BINGO with prizes. Some of the teen programs include a dance workshop, zombie preparedness and craft programs. Events for adults include a program about Sloss Furnace, introduction to genealogy and a lip-sync battle.
In the library’s first year of summer reading in 2012, 14 programs were offered for teens and children. Last year, 40 programs were offered for teens, children and adults.
The Pinson Public Library is located on Main Street in Pinson.
