Registration opens this month for Summer Reading Program
The Summer Reading Program at the Annie Thompson Jeffers Library will open for registration this month. This year, the theme is “Oceans of Possibilities,” and the program will be held from June 6 through July 15.
Registration opens on Monday, May 9, at JHLibrary.beanstack.org. Prior to May 9, patrons are encouraged to visit the website to create an account or update an existing account.
This year’s program will include the ability for readers to earn digital badges by logging their number of minutes of reading. Individuals can log their reading time, and families can register together to participate.
Patrons can participate in the category of Preschool (ages 0-5), Children (ages 6-11), Teens (ages 12-17), and Adults (ages 18 and up).
Participants will earn a badge upon registration, which will qualify them to receive a goodie bag that can be picked up after June 7 at the library. Additional badges can be earned for every one hundred minutes read, up to ten (1,000 minutes). After logging ten badges, the participant will receive a printable certificate.
Reading minutes for printed, digital and audio books, as well as picture books, will be accepted.
Readers will also have the opportunity to participate in special activities and give book reviews for extra badges.
