Entering the wonderful world of reading is an accomplishment that deserves celebration.
JCPL is proud to offer the Literacy Bell Program which applauds children who have read their first book independently. If your child has read their first book by themselves within the past six months, they are invited to attend an exclusive party celebrating their accomplishment. At this special event, children will have the honor of ringing the Jessamine County courthouse bell. The sound of the chiming bell traveling through the community will signify to everyone that your child is now an independent reader. In addition to ringing the bell, the child will enter their name and date into the “Book of Names” and receive a certificate honoring this momentous occasion.
If you have questions about this program or would like to register your child for the next Literacy Bell Party, please contact the Children’s Desk at 885-3523, ext. 227.
