Spectacular Summer Shows and Stories


Every summer, kids attend countless camps, play in sports games, and visit the beach and the aquarium. After a few weeks, the cost builds up. That can be expensive for any family. That’s why the Berkeley County Library System is excited to bring back Bright Star Theatre and Savannah balloons for a run of free shows in July. It’s a great way to keep your kids cool and occupied.

First up this July is Savannah Balloons. Lynnae Weller, the owner of this Southern show, makes fantastic balloon creations for a variety of purposes, including weddings and corporate events. She also partners with libraries to put on balloon shows based on children’s stories to encourage children to read. Check out her showtimes below! Also, don’t forget to pick up your free tickets at the hosting library before you attend.
