Tails & Tales is the theme for this year’s summer reading program. Our program will run from June 11th through July 16th. The program is designed for children ages preschool through 8th grade completed. Stop by the library at any time to register your child.
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
This program is an ongoing early literacy program to get children ready to start reading. Studies have proven that young children who have been read to regularly build the skills they need in order to learn to read. If anyone reads to your child just 1 library book a day for a year, they will have listened to 365 books!
After the children have registered at the library, they will receive a reading chart to record their books. When they complete their first 100 books they will receive a book bag and their next reading chart. The children will receive a prize for every 100 books read till they reach 1000. At 500 books, the child will have a library book dedicated to them that will remain in the library and be a reminder to your family and all the families in our community about the importance of early literacy!
Let’s see what we can accomplish together to benefit our children.
*Update to this program: It is in the process of being revised so that children can still participate but with an online program. We will give further information as it is known.
