Reading Programs

Winter Reads

w.readsJackson County Library Services’ Winter Reads program will run from January 5 through February 15, 2015, at your local branch library. This fun program for adults aims to encourage more reading during the winter months. Just drop by the library and pick up a Reading Log, (or print one from here), take it home, and write down four books as you read them. Listening to an audiobook also counts. After you have read four books and filled out the log, drop it by the library, and get another Reading Log.

Each week, at each branch, a drawing is held. The winning reader gets to choose either a gently-used book or book bucks for the Friends of the Library book sales. After February 15, everyone who has returned reading logs will have their names put into a drawing for a grand prize for a $50 gift certificate to the restaurant of their choice.

For additional information, please call your local branch library, Ashland Library Reference Desk 541-774-6996.

Summer Reading 2014 | June-August

Summer Reading 2014 was a BIG success with over 4200 children and 700 teens registering to improve/retain their reading skills over the summer. Over 63,000 books were read and 160 programs presented to almost 5,000 participants. We would like to thank the generosity of our sponsors in presenting this important program to our county. The Children’s “Fizz, Boom, Read!” program was sponsored by the Kenneth A. and Lucille D. Hulburt Family Trust, Friends of the Library groups throughout Jackson County, and HomeTown Buffet. The Teen “Spark a Reaction” program was sponsored by the Kenneth A. and Lucille D. Hulburt Family Trust and Friends of the Library groups throughout Jackson County.

Teen Summer Reading Reviews are still being updated!
