Jacksonville Public Library's Summer Reading Program Goes Online
One unexpected result of this spring’s pandemic lockdown has been an increase in reading. Library buildings have been closed, but patrons have been able to use many of their resources online. The Jacksonville Public Library hasn’t reopened its doors yet, but the staff has been busy planning for one of its most popular events -- the summer reading program. Josie Snellen is the new children’s librarian, and she says the familiar program will have a new look. Snellen says the program officially began this week, and this year it will focus on children aged 12 and younger. All of the readers will be logging their pages online through software found on the library’s website.
