Summer Reading Challenge begins!
This summer, JCPL is challenging you to help us hit our community goal of reading 3,000 hours! Summer reading will take place from June 5 through July 22 this year. When we reach our goal, the library will donate $1,000 that will be used to purchase food to give away to our community for our Pop-Up Food Pantry event on July 27, 2023. All ages are invited to participate, and every minute that you read counts towards our goal! To participate, visit the library’s front desk any time after June 5 and pick up a reading log depicting food pantry items. For every ten minutes that you read, mark off one of the food items that are on the log. Once your food items are all marked off, fill out the log and return it to the library to be entered into prize drawings for all age groups! Children who are between the ages of 0-12 will also get to pick a completion prize each time they visit the library to turn in forms. You may complete and turn in as many logs as you would like! Help us meet our reading goal and make a difference in our community!
