JACKSON COUNTY, Ore -- Readers of all ages can explore all things space at Jackson County Libraries.
It's the first day of the summer reading program. This year's theme is a universe of stories.
"If you have a child in school, the library's summer reading program is a great way to maintain reading skills and avoid the 'summer slide' (the summer slide is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months)." said Brystan Strong, JCLS Youth Services Coordinator. "It's also never too early to introduce your baby or preschooler to the library and the wonderful world of literacy and learning."
You can register today at any of the 15 libraries in Jackson County. It is free. Yhe program goes until August 10th. All readers who complete their first reading log will win a prize. The more logs you fill out the more prizes you win.
