Do you “Love Your Library”?  Then consider participating in this annual fundraising activity that will improve the collection and services the library is able to offer. Library staff have identified books and other materials, furnishings, equipment, programs, supplies, and more that the library needs.  Select one or more items and donate the funds needed for purchase.  Or purchase the items yourself and donate them to the library.  Donations will be written on a heart and displayed on the library windows as well as acknowledged on the library website and social media (view full list of donors here). View the full list of items you can adopt here.


Winter Bookopoly Library Program


The JKPL is once again offering a winter library program that will run January 2-February 29. Participants will use a Bookopoly game board to track what they are reading or doing at the library and earn prizes.  For each set completed, the participant will be able to select a free book from the prize cart to add to their home library and earn an entry into the grand prize drawings.  Several grand prize options, for various ages and interests, will be available to choose from. There are twelve opportunities to earn entries. All ages of readers are welcome and participants can sign up as individuals or as teams. Stop in the library to register and pick up your game board or print the board here.
