Build a Life-Long Love of Reading with 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power?
 
Sharing books helps your child learn pre-reading skills including: understanding the sounds that letters make, developing a larger vocabulary, and building background knowledge. 

The Library invites you and your young ones (any child from birth until enters kindergarten) to participate in 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. The program is free and also provides a great way to bond with your child.  Stop by the front desk to register and pick up a folder that contains a program overview, log, suggested booklist, and early literacy tips.  Logging books read is as simple as checking off a number on a paper log or via the app. Incentives are offered at each 100 mark. Don’t delay, get started today!

Little Free Library

Here’s how it works
 
- Visit the Little Free Library and if you see a book you would like to read, take it home with you
- When you are done, pass it on to a friend.
- You may leave books for others to read by placing them in the box. But please, do not leave books outside of the box!
 
This is a great way to promote community, sharing and literacy!
