JCLS Children's Summer Reading Program 2013
"Dig Into Reading"

Readers of all ages are invited to “Dig Into Reading” and join the 2013 Jackson County Library summer reading program. Learn all about live worms, make art using natural earth paint, join Ms. Annie’s puppets as they discover archeology, and enjoy a variety of programs, activities, and storytimes at libraries throughout the county.

Registration for the program begins as soon as school is out in June. Children age 2-12 are invited to sign up at their local branch library. All children who read or listen to ten books will receive a special bookmark, a reading certificate, a coupon for a free kid’s meal from HomeTown Buffet, and a pass to the Kid Time! Discovery Experience. Kids who complete the program will also be eligible to enter local branch library drawings for additional prizes.

Parents of infants and toddlers 0-24 months can read to their children and receive a gift book, a signed certificate, and a bookmark.

Summer Reading ends August 11th.
