Kids, teens and adults can sign up online at jeffcolibrary.org/summerreading or at any JCPL location. Summer Reading Club runs from June 1 through July 31.

The Summer Reading Club encourages kids and teens to read more over the summer, and to explore other services available at community libraries.

Once they have accomplished certain goals, kids and teens in the club will receive a free book, compliments of the Jefferson County Library Foundation. Additional rewards and coupons can be earned by continuing to earn achievements, including the chance for kids, teens and adults to win a Kindle.
