Community Support Makes Summer Reading Club Better than Ever
Our Summer Reading Club wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of several organizations. We wanted to share our appreciation with our sponsors and groups that have provided extremely generous prizes and coupons.

The Jefferson County Library Foundation, Friends of JCPL and the Kinder Morgan Foundation are sponsors of the Summer Reading Club, providing substantial funding to the program. We couldn’t offer the robust program we have without their support.

As you may know, this year we have fantastic prizes for kids, teens and adults. Thanks to Brown and Tedstrom, Inc. and the Wheat Ridge Optimists for each donating a Kindle Fire. These prizes will be given to one lucky finisher from both the kids and teen groups!

Adult finishers will be entered to win an iPad3 courtesy of Larkin & Associates, LLC and EduCyber!

Other program partners include Brunswick Bowling, the Colorado Rapids, Heritage Square, Lakeside Amusement Park and Westerra Credit Union, who have given coupons and tickets for Summer Reading Club participants and finishers.

The library is only as strong as its communities. We are tremendously appreciative of the support provided by these partners and our patrons throughout the year.

Don’t forget to sign up for Summer Reading Club today!
