• Our 26th Annual Read-a-thon will run from March 1 - April 10.

  • During the month of March, we invite you and your children to focus on literacy and reading. We encourage each child to set goals for their reading and enjoyment of books. The goals that are set will look different for each child. As your child reads, pledges can be collected from family and friends for the books that they have read, or that are read to them.

  • By participating, you can help the Jackman ICS Library raise funds to increase our collection! We use the funds raised to improve the scope and variety of books in our collection, purchasing books from independent book stores and that need to be ordered from educational publishers and specialty stores. In addition, funds raised allow us to invite many wonderful storytellers, authors, and illustrators. 

  • Participation in Read-A-Thon is fun! The sponsor sheet allows families to identify sponsors and track the pledges for the month of March. If you prefer, a flat donation is also welcome. 

  • DONATIONS can be made to the “Jackman ICS Parents’ Association” online, by cheque or cash.

  • Every child who raises $25 or more will have his or her name placed on a bookplate in a new library book and the classes with 100% participation will celebrate with a collective prize.
