1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book – any book – to your infant, toddler, or child. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your child starts Kindergarten. Record any books read to your child by you, a teacher, a sibling, even a library story time! You can repeat books. After your child reaches a milestone (every 100 books read) turn in your reading log to receive a small prize.

Music & Movement

Join us for a special toddler time on Wednesday, January 8 at 3:45 p.m. Music and movement for young children as reading is. Music and movement can help your child develop small and large motor skills, express emotion, increase coordination, and learn social skills. This program will last about half an hour and is designed for ages birth to 4 years old, but all ages are welcome and family participation is encouraged.

Tea Party Book Club

The next Tea Party Book Club meeting will be Tuesday, January 28 at 5:00 p.m.  The club typically meets the last Tuesday of every month to share snacks while reading and discussing books. Most books read have an A.R. level between 1.9 and 2.9. RSVP is not required, but appreciated to ensure we have enough treats and books for everyone.

Adopt-a-Shelf

The library’s new Adopt-a-Shelf program is a great way for students to earn volunteer hours around their schedule. Students 6th grade and older can come to the library whenever convenient and tidy up a shelf to earn volunteer credit. Any shelf, any time! Ask a librarian to help you get started.
