Williamson libraries see growth in summer reading

FAIRVIEW, TN (WSMV) -

Summer reading programs at libraries in Fairview and Spring Hill are growing.

The Fairview library has nearly 200 readers in the program while there’s about 700 in Spring Hill.

“The whole state theme is libraries rock,” said Dana Juriew, the director of the Spring Hill Library. “It's a musical theme so in the coming days we're having hoedowns for all ages.”

Spring Hill Library is even bringing in The Country Music Hall of Fame to teach teens how to write songs.

The Fairview library also has summer reading guests lined up, including local musician Jacob Johnson.

"A couple weeks ago we had the animal guy come in, who draws a big crowd,” said Phillip McAndrew the branch director of the Fairview Library. “Guests really bring the kids in and then they sign up."

Kids read, complete activities and earn free prizes.

In April, the Spring Hill library added more than 150 new members. In May it added 300 more.

“We're seeing about 600 visitors a day,” said Juriew.

The library has plans to move into the Northfield Building, formerly owned by General Motors.

Renderings show suites 100, 200 and 300 will be used to create new spaces for kids, teens and adults.

“It's a growth opportunity and it's also a chance to serve our patrons better with more resources,” said Juriew.
