Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) launched its Summer Reading program on June 1. This year, the program has a community-wide goal of reading a collective 30 million minutes in two months. JCPL aims to create a culture of reading in Jefferson County while helping students maintain or improve their reading levels for when they return to school in the fall. 

JCPL also is continuing its Summer Reading School Contest, awarding $800 to five Jeffco Public Schools that have the highest percentage of finishers (students who read and log at least eight hours) in their respective categories (preschool; elementary; middle; high; charter/choice/option).

Register online at www.jeffcolibrary.org/SummerReading or in any Jefferson County library through July 3.
