The Jasper County Public Library invites teens to “Spark a Reaction” with this summer’s Teen Summer Reading programs at each branch of JCPL.

Summer is here this month, and so is summer reading. There is a lot of science going on this year with FIZZ BOOM READ, so be sure to check out the exciting programs and events happening at your local library.

I wish I had a nickel for every time I start a sentence with the words, “I wish…” I wish it would only rain at night and that the sun would shine all day long…I wish the wind would stop blowing; it’s giving me a stretch of bad hair days like no other; I wish the pollen count were not so high (sniff, sniff).

For the next few weeks, area graduates will be focusing on those last steps before they walk down the aisle and get their diploma. But for other high-school-aged students, now is also a good time to be thinking about what happens next.

Summer Reading volunteers serve ice cream at the program kick-off in Rensselaer.

Looking for something to do this summer? Need service hours completed for a school or community group? Want to spend time with friends? Or kids? Then consider becoming a volunteer at your local library for the Summer Reading Program.

It was a blast from the past. Scrolling through Facebook this morning, I came across a post that someone had shared that included a video of children who had been given a Walkman, and then asked what it was and how it worked. Remember the Walkman, the best invention to hit the streets in the 80’s?

These are the latest selections from our monthly book drawing hosted by charitable sorority Psi Iota Xi. Stop in the Rensselaer Library at any time and enter these drawings to win a free adult or children's book. Congrats to the lucky winners of these fabulous looking books!

And much thanks to Psi Iota Xi for making this continuing literacy effort possible.
