Polk County locals have about a week left to explore ‘A Universe of Stories’ with this year’s summer reading program, and there are still plenty of events to keep local astronauts entertained before school starts back.

This week, Cedartown’s events include a 10 a.m. computer class on July 25, a 12 p.m. stitching session on July 26, and 1 p.m. movie on July 27. There are no special events planned for July 23 or July 24.

July 26 is also the last day for Rockmart locals to pick up a free lunch at the library.
