During the month of March, we invite you and your children to focus on literacy and reading. We encourage each child to set goals for their reading and enjoyment of books. The goals that are set will look different for each child. We suggest adopting the goal of spending at least 20 minutes per day reading for Read-A-Thon (this may already be part of your ongoing reading goals). As your child reads, pledges can be collected from family and friends for the books that they have read, or that are read to them.
By participating, you can help the Jackman ICS Library raise funds to increase our collection! We use the funds raised to improve the scope and variety of books in our collection, purchasing books from independent book stores and that need to be ordered from educational publishers and specialty stores. In addition, funds raised allow us to invite many wonderful storytellers, authors, and illustrators.
Thank you for your continued support of the JICS Library!
