Summer Reading 2017

Summer reading is fast approaching and I would love to come out to your school to help your students sign up for Jeffco Library Summer reading.  Our theme is Build a Better World and our goal is to help students maintain or even improve their reading levels for when they return to school in the fall.

  • Register online and get a BOGO coupon for Chipotle.  

  • Starting May 1st we will be able to pre-register students for the Summer Reading program.

  • Read for 4 hours - receive a free book.

  • Read for 8 hours

  • Kids will get a pass to Lakeside Amusement Park

  • Teens will get a pass to Elitch Gardens (while supplies last)

We will have a school contest again this year.  The school that reads the most will receive $800 to help support the library or literacy based program at their school.

If we reach our goal of 30 million minutes the library foundation will donate $500 to Foothills Animal Shelter.
