Jackson gets into summer reading

Written by 

The summer reading program at the Jackson County Public Library is getting started at 7 p.m. on June 20, with a performance by storyteller Lloyd Arneach.

His stories range from old Cherokee stories to contemporary pieces that he has collected, and many are light-hearted and humorous while highlighting the Cherokee reverence for nature.  

The program will continue throughout the summer, with four age groups available: toddler (birth-2 years), preschool (3-5 years), school age (6-12 years), and young adult (13-18 years). The program will allow kids to explore places from Oceania to Russia through stories, crafts, music, dance and other activities.

Families are welcome to join the Read-to-Me portion of the program. Additionally, an evening program titled “Sleepy Time: Lullabies and Bedtimes around the World” will be held for families. The program began June 13 and will end the last week of July. Registration will be held at the Friends of the Library Used Book Store at 536 West Main Street.

No phone registration will be accepted. Fontanalib.org/Sylva or Betty Screven 828.586.1640 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

This Must Be the Place

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
