Color Me Relaxed @ Your Library
Stop in the library anytime February 14-28 to participate in this fun and relaxing program for all ages. The library will provide coloring pages, colored pencils and markers and you provide your talent! Materials will be available to pick up at the front desk and you can take them anywhere in the library and relax with coloring. When you are finished, or out of time, bring them back to the desk for others to pick up and continue coloring. Completed pages will be displayed in the library. All participants will have their name entered into a drawing to win the JKPL Family Coloring Book, which is also available to purchase for $10.00.

Warm–Up @ Your Library Winter Reading Program continues
Again this winter the JKPL is offering a winter library program for adults using a bingo card. Stop in anytime after January 3 and pick up your Warm-Up bingo card and book bag or download the bingo card here. Read different genres and formats, listen to books, try out databases and other services, or attend library programs to fill the squares. Every bingo (maximum of three per person) earns the chance to win some great prizes, including the grand prize of a tablet or eReader (final product to be decided). All black out bingos will earn you a special JKPL goodie bag. Adults eighteen and older with a James Kennedy Public Library card are eligible to participate. The winter library program will run from January 3 thru February 28 and is sponsored by the Friends of the James Kennedy Public Library.
