Summer Reading Program Underway: Earn Free Books from Tenikka’s Books for Kids

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is underway and that means your child can now get free books from Tenikka’s Books for Kids.

The Summer Reading Program will run through July 30th. This year’s theme is “Oceans of Possibilities.”

The library is hosting several in-person and virtual events to encourage reading and a chance to win prizes. All of the activities, events, and programs are free.

The goal is to get kids to read for at least 20 minutes a day. For every 15 days of reading, children can earn free books from Tenikka’s Books for Kids.

Nearly 5,000 books were donated to Tenikka’s Books for Kids during the annual book collection drive in March.

Since its opening launch in 2018, Tenikka’s Books for Kids has put nearly 20,000 books in the hands of local children.
