Growing Readers Fall Programs

You’ve been wondering, and we now announce our upcoming (Virtual) Fall Children’s Programs!
Starting September 20th, children aged infant through 6 years can attend programs via Zoom on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Registration is already open, just click here to view our events calendar. This series of programs will be 5 weeks, however, they will not meet October 11th.

Your child will have a “front row seat,” viewing stories and singing songs while interacting with library staff who present each program. Most programs are presented live from our story time studio, so your child will feel like they are right at the library! In our calendar, you’ll find programs for 2’s, 3’s, and ages 4-6 on Mondays; infants/toddlers and 3’s on Thursdays; and on Fridays, something for 3’s and ages 4-6. Once you register, a Zoom link will be sent via email to you on the day of the program. When you register, please include your child’s name and age, and a current email address. We look forward to sharing many great stories with you this fall!

Tails and Tales Summer Reading 2021

Tails and Tales and Patch Power 2021

Summer is almost upon us!  What will you do with your summer?  Reading or listening to books each day is a great way to keep yourself entertained, not to mention all the exciting people you meet and places to go in the books that you read!

Visit the library in person or online beginning June 7 to get started on your summer reading.  Participants from Pre-K to Grade 5 are encouraged to read or listen to books for 30 minutes or more every day all summer, then record your accomplishments through the Tails and Tales: Patch Power 2021 website or app.

You can also complete MISSIONS, by completing at-home activities and attending Virtual Programs, to earn patches!  In addition to our patches from years before, we have 4 new patches to earn this summer: Mythic Hero, Time Traveler, Sprout Scouts, and Prehistoric Explorer!  Stay tuned to our events calendar for some grand virtual programs that you can attend this summer, beginning June 28!

BEFORE KINDERGARTEN

Even children under 3 years can participate this summer by signing up for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten! Research has shown that listening to books each day helps children to develop the important pre-reading skills that provide a solid foundation for learning to read — a key to learning and school success. Read at least 100 books this summer to earn a special award!
