As the days grow longer and the nights warmer, summer is a great time to sit down with a good book. If you or your children are looking for a fun and exciting way to spend the hotter months, look no further than Jefferson County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, running through July 31. Everyone gets a gift for registering. Start reading toward your goal and you’ll win a prize when you’re halfway there. Complete your reading goal to win a finisher prize. Pick up prizes at your library while supplies last. Among the freebies: tickets to Lakeside Amuseument Park and Elitch Gardens, coupons for meals from Chipotle and, of course, books. You can register online or at your local library branch starting June 1.
