Make the most of your summer break through the Summer Reading Program!

From June 1-July 31, expect engaging events, entertaining activities, and, of course, a LOT of reading. 

Take a look at everything we've got to offer!

READING | What's better than a summer spent reading? Getting credit for it, too!

The first two books you read will earn you a fun prize! Quantities are limited, so grab yours fast! Two books read ALSO earns an entry into the Grand Prize district drawing plus an entry into your Branch Prize drawing.  After that, every additional two books read in June and July earns another entry into your Branch Prize drawing, up to 11 entries (22 books read). Track the books through Beanstack, or, with a paper log from your branch.

The prize details: 

With 4 Grand Prizes possible-- one at each JCL location-- each with a value of $150, participation in the program is a no-brainer! Grand Prize winners can choose $150 worth of gift cards from Adventure Valley, Marcus Theaters, Swing Around Fun Town, Barnes & Noble, or Kraus Farms. 

Branch Prizes are valued at $50 each. Drawings for both will be held on August 7.

Prizes will be distributed at the end of the Summer Reading Program. Paper reading logs and Beanstack reading logs must be submitted by July 31.
