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. 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

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
