Congratulations, Jeffco! We still have a week to go and you've read an astounding 30 million minutes during Summer Reading 2017! Hitting this goal surpasses everyone’s expectations but we've known all along you have what it takes to create a culture of reading in Jefferson County.

More than 41,000 people are actively participating in this year’s Summer Reading program to Build a Better World. And it’s not over yet. We still have until July 31 to read, log those minutes, and see how far we can take it.

Congratulations to the Foothills Animal Shelter, our Summer Reading non-profit partner, who will receive $500 because we reached our goal.

For those readers in Kindergarten to 12th grade, keep reading and logging your time. The school contest continues with several schools running neck and neck to the finish line.

Let’s read!

You’ve been reading! And logging! 15 million minutes! We are halfway to our countywide goal of 30 million minutes and surpassing last year’s registered readers and minutes. We have one month until Summer Reading ends on July 31. Let’s keep it going.

You can still sign up, get prizes and help Jefferson County create a culture of reading, all while supporting our students in maintaining their learning progress over these hot, summer months.

And, we need to reach our 30 million minutes goal in order to give Foothills Animal Shelter their $500 prize.

If you haven’t signed up for Summer Reading, you can do it here.

If you’ve signed up and have been reading, log your minutes here.

And if you haven’t attended one of the fabulous free events we’ve planned, you can check them out here.

Congratulations, Jeffco, on hitting 15 million minutes. Let’s go for 30 million minutes!

One Book 4 ColoradoIt’s a fine time to be 4 in Colorado. We are once again participating in One Book 4 Colorado, a program that aims to provide a new book to every 4-year-old in the state. Since 2012, One Book 4 Colorado has given away over 75,000 copies of the same book to each 4-year-old in the state in English and Spanish through public libraries and Denver Preschool Program classrooms. 

Reading with preschoolers every day helps get kids ready to learn to read in kindergarten, and getting free books into homes makes that easier. All 4-year-olds can stop in to any JCPL library from April 17 to May 1 to get their book on a first-come, first-served basis.

Columbine Library to Close for Construction Sunday, April 9

Alternative Services to begin Monday, April 10 at 8055 W Bowles Ave.

(Lakewood, Colo. – March 22, 2017) The dream of a modern library in South Jefferson County is about to become a reality. Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) is planning a major remodel of the Columbine Library, located at 7706 W. Bowles Ave. in Littleton. As a result, the Columbine Library will be closed for construction from Sunday, April 9, through late September, 2017.

Jefferson County Public Library to upgrade self-service options for patrons

(Lakewood, Colo. – March 20, 2016) Beginning this week, Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) is upgrading to new service kiosks at nine JCPL library locations. These new selfCheck™ kiosks, offered by bibliotheca™, allow patrons to complete a number of self-service transactions − including checking out Library materials and paying fines and fees – quickly and efficiently. 

Adults with disabilities rediscover the library through expanded learning and discovery programs

(Lakewood, Colo. – March 10, 2017)  The Library is more than a collection of books. It’s a place where everyone can learn, play and create!  The American Library Association recognizes that people with disabilities are a large part of our community and that many often face limited opportunities, including opportunities to be creative and engage socially.
