    Commissioners Support Reading


    The Board of County Commissioners encourages everyone, especially Jeffco youth, to pick up a book and start reading!

    A very fun and rewarding way is to join Jefferson County Public Library’s Summer Reading Club. It is sponsored by the Jefferson County Library Foundation and runs through July 31. Kids, teens and adults can sign up online at jeffcolibrary.org/summerreading or at any JCPL location throughout the summer.

    Miniature pigs, critters of the night, genies and even Pete the Cat will be part of the Kids’ Summer Reading Club, "Dream Big: Read." Many of the programs will require tickets; check out the full schedule for details at jeffcolibrary.org/summerreading. In addition to the chance to win a Kindle Fire, kids who read for at least eight hours are eligible to receive a free book on Book Award Day, or any day in August.

    Teens can "Own the Night" this summer by learning about crime solving forensic work, hunting monsters, becoming a comedian and more. In addition to qualifying to win a Kindle Fire, teens who read for at least eight hours can receive a free book on Book Award Day, or any day in August. Not only that, but teens who read 16 hours can enter a drawing to win a spot at Games Night, a special after-hours library party.

    Summer Reading Club isn’t just for the kids. Adults are encouraged to discover what’s "Between the Covers" this summer. Anyone who reads for eight hours will be entered to win an iPad 3.

    Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the Jefferson County Library Foundation, the Friends of the Jefferson County Public Library, and the Kinder Morgan Foundation. Prizes are being offered compliments of the following local sponsors: Brown & Tedstrom, Inc., EduCyber, Larkin & Associates, LLC and the Wheat Ridge Optimist Club.
