This summer, if you share a positive message about your library on social media, you will receive an extra entry into the prize drawing for your library’s summer reading program.

All you need to do is post about us on twitter, facebook, tumblr, pinterest, instagram, vine or any other social media, and include the hashtag #myjcpl -- then show your message to the front desk at your local library.

This contest is open to teens and adults, and good for one slip per patron.

Bring your digital camera (or use ours) and create a photo of yourself that you can drop into various backgrounds of your choice. If you use your own camera, you must bring your cable so your photo can be copied to a standard PC laptop via a USB cable.
