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.
Tea Party Book Club
The next Tea Party Book Club meeting will be Tuesday, October 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the library. We will be reading “In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories” by Alvin Schwartz. For our October meeting you are encouraged to wear your Halloween costumes! 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.
Students in 5th grade and older are invited to join our new American Sign Language Club! You will have the opportunity to meet new people, and learn about sign language and deaf culture. This program is hosted by kids, for kids. Family members of any age are also invited to attend. This club meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month (except November and December – those months we will only meet the 2nd Wednesday due to holidays.) Upcoming meetings: October 9 & 23 @ 3:30 p.m.
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.
