Jacksonville Public Library summer reading program available to newborns

Dig Into Reading, a Jacksonville Public Library summer reading program, encourages not just children to read over summer, but also for parents to read to their infants as well.

The program, set to run from June 11 to August 2  is free and open to newborns and children up to 12 years of age. Children who read 10 books over the course of the two summer months will receive a free book at the end of the program.

All library branch locations will be participating in Dig Into Reading. Registration for the program will be available on the Jacksonville Public Library website June 1. The event schedule for the program will be posted online May 15.
