Never fear, summer reading program a go

Written by 

Even with the old library closing, Jackson County kids can’t get out of their parents enrolling them in Jackson County’s annual summer reading program. This year it is “One World, Many Stories,” in which children will explore places from Oceania to Russia through stories, crafts, music, dance and more. The program is open from preschool ages to young adult, and entire families are encouraged to join the read-to-me portions.

Registration for the program is being held at the Friends of the Library Used Bookstore, 356 West Main St., Sylva. No phone registration — you’ve got to sign up in person.
