Locations at the JDL

Track your reading, win prizes, and discover something new in an all-ages reading challenge.

Simply read anything (yes, anything, from daunting novels to breezy comics) between June 1 and July 31, log your time online, and enter to win a wide variety of prizes. Every four hours read gets you an entry into a prize drawing of your choice.

Parents and guardians of those who can’t read earn a free book for signing up and another for completing the program. A total of two hours of reading to your toddler or loved one enters them into a prize drawing. Books, magazines, graphic novels - even the website you’re reading right now - count toward your reading goal.

During the months of June and July all of our branches throughout Jackson County will host family-themed programs and events.

  • At JDL, we know that keeping Jackson County residents reading over the summer is more important than ever - especially for students. The "summer slide" is a decline in reading ability that can occur over the summer months when school isn't in session. Our Summer Discover program is a free, annual reading initiative for all ages that can help to curb the "summer slide."
