The first Jefferson County Reading Council meeting for 2019-2020 will be held from 4-4:45 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, at Lybrand’s Bakery & Deli, 2900 S. Hazel St.

The theme is “A Membership Celebration.” The event will include cake, free JCRC T-shirts to take and literacy projects to make, according to a news release.

“There will be a membership table where you can take advantage of the ‘Early Bird’ Membership Campaign; $15 to join rather than $20 after Sept. 30. We hope to see you there,” according to the release.
