Lola Snyder, head of youth services, gave a report about the summer reading program when the Jackson County Public Library board of trustees met Monday at the Seymour Library.
The “Build a Better World!” summer reading program is online and in the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries and on the Discovery Bus from June 1 to July 31.
A kickoff celebration with bouncy houses, face painting, popcorn, cotton candy, games and more will be at the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries from 2 to 6 p.m. June 1. Volunteers are needed to man the fun afternoon that attracted more than 3,000 people in 2016.
Participants of all ages will receive bags and coupons when registering and grand prize and/or weekly book drawing entries for visiting the library, talking to library staff and attending programs. Everyone is encouraged to set their own goals and read every day or track minutes or books read. They also may complete rows on a BUILD card for additional chances to win prizes.
Starting at 8:30 a.m. June 1, registration is at links.myjclibrary.org/summerreading.
After Snyder’s report, the board approved personnel changes and tabled changes to the personnel policy.
The next board meeting is at 5 p.m. June 19 at the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St.
