We realized too late that the Cobb County Library was not handing out paper logs for summer reading. If you are having a hard time logging into the Scholastic Summer Reading website to log your hours, print out this form instead and start listing your titles. You can return it to us the first week of school and still get recognized for participating! Also don’t forget to check the Summer Reading Program 2017 page for lots more information!
