Congrats to the grand prize winners and everyone who participated in this year’s summer reading program! Completion prizes will be available at all branches until August 7.

Explore the “Oceans of Possibilities” that await you at your local library during JDL’s 2022 Summer Reading Program.

Sign up today by clicking here.

Simply read for four hours between June 1 and July 31, log your time on the site linked above, and enter to win a wide variety of prizes including gift cards to local favorites like Cascades Ice Cream, Jax 60, the Michigan Theatre, Ella Sharp Park Putt-Putt, the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, and the Jackson County Fair, among other prizes. Every four hours read gets you another 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 newsletter you’re reading right now - count toward your reading goal.

For those who would like paper reading logs to print out, click here.

During the months of June and July all of our 13 branches throughout Jackson County will host family-themed programs and events like ARK Animal Encounters, Bubbleman, and storytellers. A full program schedule is included below.

Finally, join us for an SRP Block Party from 1-4 PM Saturday, July 30, in front of Carnegie Library in downtown Jackson that will feature a live DJ, live performances, games, activities, performers including pirates and mermaids, and more.
