Announcing the 2018 Jump Start summer reading workshops. Choose from one of eight locations at a library near you:

All workshops will be 10 am to 3 pm local time, with a break for lunch. The local site will coordinate lunch. Each person registering should bring a craft, activity, or game to share with the group. Each person should register separately. Each registrant will receive a kit of sample activities and supplies. (This decision is based on the total number available.)
