Never fear, summer reading program a go

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.
