For the Ashland library teen department, Jackson County Library Services, Janis Mohr-Tipton led an entertaining hands-on activity on Tuesday, part of the Jackson County Library Services teen summer reading program.

Participants felted strips of wool to “Create a Riot of Color,” juggling balls, bracelets and more.

Mohr-Tipton’s presentation included a sampling of books for junior and young adult readers. And if you missed Tuesday’s activity, watch the JCLS calendar. Presentations are scheduled at multiple branches in our library system.
