Participate in Route 66 and read to your child or have them read to you (parents can also read for themselves for this program!) everyday for 66 days from January through March! Research shows it takes 66 days to form a habit. Help kids develop a healthy habit—reading daily—by joining the Read 66 challenge at Jacksonville Public Library. Start in January by reading 15 minutes a day. Pick up a Roadmap Reading Tracker at the library or download online and track your reading to earn prizes. We’ll celebrate with a party at the end of the Reading Challenge. And for the grand finale, come to the library’s fun Jax Book Fest, March 25, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., at the Main Library. You’ll see some of your
favorite children’s authors and illustrators.
