Time Traveler: Past, Present, and Future

It is time again for the Great Jackson County Read, the adult summer reading program from Jackson County Public Library. I don’t know about you but it couldn’t have come at a better time. Speaking of time, what is time? This year’s theme is... Time Traveler: Past, Present, and Future. Feel free to read any book that you choose, we will only be counting pages read this year, but maybe taking a stroll through time, either with true time traveling science fiction or a great historical novel is just what the doctor ordered.

With all that is happening in our world we could all use a little escape. Check our website for some reading suggestions from the library staff. This year we are encouraging you to sign up online using this link, https://forms.gle/MYFkb7C8Y4JjmESXA . If you need help please call the Jackson County Public Library at, 586-2016 and we can fill the form in for you. We will not be handing out a packet this year or book information sheets like we have in years past. To track your reading, use this form: https://forms.gle/tZPHFs2S44oSCgiW9 and don’t forget to let us know what you think of the books that you are reading. If you need help with the tracking form call the library, 586-2016.

We will also continue engaging through the Great Jackson County Read facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/172165393445822 as well as a Time Traveler newsletter. If enough people are interested we may even have a few passive online book clubs! Prizes are limited this year, we have decided that it would be inappropriate to ask our local small businesses to contribute in this economic climate. We have put our heads together to offer some fun items.
300 pages - free DVD rental
600 pages - Library swag bag
1000 pages - gift certificate from the friends of the library bookstore
3000 pages - book plaque, we will dedicate a book from the shelves to you with your name and reading accomplishment.
or every 300 pages that you read your name will be added to the local business raffle. At the end of the Summer Read program we will draw six names at random to receive a gift certificate from one of the great Sylva businesses.

Dates:

Last day for pages read to count towards prizes,September, 7
