Jerome, Idaho – Valley Wide Cooperative donates toys from the Valley Country Store to the Jerome Public Library. The Jerome Public Library holds summer reading for kids of all ages. This program helps the kids stay out of trouble and give them something fun to do at the same time they are learning. This program goes every week of the summer and they normally get between 200-500 kids who participate. Valley Country Store has been supporting this event for the last several years and now Valley Wide Cooperative continues to support this great cause. The kids go to the library and they have activities for all ages to participate in. If you would like more information you can call the library here in Jerome and get more information about the program.
