Adult and Teen Summer Reading Program starting June 13th
If you think prizes for reading is just for kids... think again!
We have some killer prizes this year for both teens and adults. What's more, they're pretty easy to win. Just sign up at the Jefferson Public Library and get some reading cards to fill out every time you read. Then, when you've read one card's worth (teen=3 hours and adults=5 hours), you put it towards the prize you want a chance to win.
