Jackson County Library Events For December Coming Up

Fri 11-25-2022

(Jackson)- The Jackson County Libraries are kicking off their December events soon as we are now past Thanksgiving, and Mackenzie Schley of the Jackson County Library System says that there are a lot of events going on to commemorate the Christmas season. One event is designed to help the parents out there get their kids minds off the presents under the tree with some holiday children's books to unwrap...

Schley 11-25-22 

“We have a whole bunch of really fun Christmas books for kids, and to make it even better we wrap them up and put them in a bundle so you can come in and check out some mystery holiday children's books, and then they get to actually unwrap them, so you can put them off of unwrapping their own presents by showing them these library books that they get to unwrap and have fun with.”

There will also be another adult event, book painting with Gayle More on December 7th, the Winter Reading Program will kick off on December 30th, and of course there will be a list of teen and tween events on as well. The library will also be closed on December 24-26 and January 2nd.

Also, a recent grant to the Jackson County Libraries also saw a $2,000 donation from Modern Woodmen that looks to be used for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program. That program looks to see kids read a thousand books before getting into kindergarten, and if successful, they will get to participate in a ceremony, get some prizes, and of course a certificate of completion. Those interested in that program can also sign up at any of the Jackson County Libraries.
