Summer Reading Program

The Jackson County Library System has many programs all throughout the summer, and now adults can participate too! Adults can sign up for a BINGO card to read for prizes all summer long, earning a prize for a single BINGO and a blackout. Previous prizes have been king size chocolate bars and tote bags. We also have a family BINGO that can be done with everyone in the family to promote literacy and family fun during the summer months.
