Tuesdays, 3:30-4:30 PM
On 9/24 (and Tuesdays at 3:30 PM going forward) we will be having our Library Explorers Club. We will explore Science and Art, Magic and Technology, Engineering and Music. Come ready to have fun, learn new things and maybe a snack or two. This program is open to 1st through 6th graders.
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
This free fun activity is open to any child ages 0-5. Just stop at the youth services desk to fill out a quick registration form and receive your first reading log page.
Each time you read a book with your child (and yes same books, new books, story time books all count), mark it on the reading log. You can use a simple check or X, have the child color the circle or use stickers… it is entirely up to you.
Once that sheet is filled return it to the youth services desk and receive the next page.
Small prizes will be given upon reaching 250, 500 and 750 books. Once your child completes 1,000 books, they will receive a certificate and a book to keep. We would love to take a picture of them with their certificate for our 1,000 Books before Kindergarten wall.
