Children learn literacy skills through playinghearing stories, talking about the stories, and acting out themes related to the stories.

Youth Services

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Register at the library and get your tracking sheets.

Read to your baby or toddler.

It’s never too early to start a child's love for books.

Read 3 books a day for 1 year = 1095.

After every 100 sheet is filled, bring it to the library and a balloon with your child’s name will go up on our blue sky chart.

At the end, your child will get their photo taken for the newspaper and website, a certificate of accomplishment, and a free book!
