The Adventures of Tom Sawyer will make its way across Jefferson County in a Read it Forward event inspired by the book Pay It Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde, about an 8th grader who decides to change the world by passing on good deeds for others,
The 40 public libraries of Jefferson County invite you to participate in the Read it Forward event on Tuesday, March 9. Participants are asked to read a copy of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, pass it forward to a friend, and log on to the JCLC web site to comment on the book. Tracking registration can be found by clicking on Read it Forward at www.jclc.org.
The kick-off will be held at the Regions Harbert Plaza Tuesday, March 9. A limited number of free books will be given out. Books will also be dropped in coffee shops, laundry mats, malls, gyms, prisons, offices, and the public libraries, so go to a location nearest you.
Read it Forward is in collaboration with The Big Read: Alabama Reads The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, a campaign to encourage library usage and literacy throughout the state of Alabama. Support your local library, and visit www.jclc.org for more information.
