The Jackson County Public Library will start registration for the annual Summer Reading Program on Monday, June 8. Anyone interested can come to the Youth Services desk on the first floor of the library to register.
The Summer Reading Program is designed to keep children and teens excited about reading during the summer months. Each registrant will receive a Reading Log and will win various prizes for each week that they read at least 20 minutes a day. Children from birth to 18 are eligible for the program. Children that are not literate can still participate by being read to by an adult.
This year's Summer Reading Program will feature prizes, storytimes, movies, creative writing workshops, arts and craft days, and the usual Big Program Thursdays.
