Summer Reading 2024 June 1st - July 25th

As the school year draws to a close and summer approaches, we are thrilled to invite you and your children to participate in our summer reading program at Jackson County Public Library! We believe that reading is an adventure that should continue all year round, and we have planned a variety of engaging activities and incentives to make this summer a memorable one for your family.

Here's why we think you should join us:

  1. Preventing the "Summer Slide": Research shows that students can lose valuable academic skills over the summer break. By participating in our summer reading program, your children can keep their minds active and sharp, ensuring they return to school in the fall ready to succeed.
  2. Fostering a Love for Reading: We want to ignite a passion for reading in your children that will last a lifetime. Our program offers a diverse selection of books for all ages and interests, providing endless opportunities for discovery and enjoyment.
  3. Access to Free Books: We understand that access to books can sometimes be limited outside of the school setting. That's why our library is stocked with a wide range of books that your children can borrow for free all summer long. No matter what their interests are, we have something for everyone.
  4. Community Engagement: Our summer reading program isn't just about reading; it's also about coming together as a community. We will be hosting fun events and activities throughout the summer where your children can meet new friends, share their love of reading, and have a great time.
  5. Supporting Lifelong Learning: By participating in our program, your children will develop important literacy skills, expand their vocabulary, and foster a curious and inquisitive mindset. These are skills that will benefit them not only in school but also in their future endeavors.

We hope you will join us for an exciting summer of reading adventures at Jackson County Public Library! Together, we can make this summer one to remember and set your children on the path to a lifetime of learning and exploration.
