We’re Looking for Volunteers
Are you passionate about early literacy? Do you love kids? Are you looking for a meaningful experience that gives back to your community? We have just the thing! Our Start with a Story outreach program allows JCPL to provide early literacy experiences to children in the community who may not otherwise be able to visit the library. We are looking for volunteers to provide storytimes at area daycare centers and preschools. What's storytime all about? It's about sharing stories, games, and literacy activities with children and teachers.

We are seeking volunteers to help us launch our pilot program in September – training will be provided. To learn more contact Jennifer Hand.

Technology Upgrades Underway
As many of you know, we're working hard to improve and expand patron services to keep up with our patrons' growing demand for online services. So, JCPL has started a series of technology upgrades that will occur over the next few weeks.

As with any system as large and complex as JCPL's, system changes will sometimes cause intermittent service issues to occur. Rest assured that we're working with our vendor partners to ensure that any issues that might occur are resolved quickly and to your satisfaction.

We're confident that these efforts will deliver significant enhancements to patrons and staff alike and we appreciate your patience during this time.
