TriStar Reads and the Jennie Woodworth Library

 White Bluff readers are awesome!

This summer while our programs were canceled to limit exposure to C19, TriStar Reads offered its FREE online Summer Reading Program.

The Jennie Woodworth Library participated in this program to encourage reading. Students had the opportunity to record their hours in reading for the chance at a prize from Tennesseans for Student Success. The program was available for students K-12 and each bracket (k-5, 6-8, and 9-12) a prize for the student that reads the most.

Students and/or their parents signup and logged their hours May 1 through September 7, 2020. (We will be participating again in 2021.)

In addition, teams were able to be formed and at the end of the summer, those teams were awarded a monetary donation based on their readers. The team for the Jennie Woodworth Library is JWL

We are excited to share that the Jennie Woodworth Library received a donation of $230. We will be using that money to further supplement our juvenile nonfiction books.

This donation would not have happened if it were not for our patrons. Thank you, thank you VERY much!

TriStar Reads will have the Summer Reading Program in 2021 as well and you can signup at make sure to use JWL as your team name so you can support your community library! Go ahead and signup now so that you can receive information via email. The program begins May 1, 2021.

We also would like to send our heartfelt appreciation to Mayor Linda Hayes. Linda is an amazing advocate of literacy for all ages. She has always supported the growth and reach of our library.
