We were interviewed by NewsNet! Now you can take a sneak peek at what our Wednesday storytime is all about. We hope to see you there in the future!

Come join Miss Mallory in singing songs, rhyming, reading books, and more! We meet from 10:30 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. at the Library in Mesick. This storytime is perfect for 0-5 year olds, but all are welcome. 

Every Monday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. we get our legos out! Please feel free to drop by and build. We have an optional weekly challenge, or you can simply use your imagination. Parents/guardians are required to be present. Ages 3 - 10.

With 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, the goal is simple: read 1,000 books with your child before they hit kindergarten.

Sounds like a lot, huh?  Don't worry!

1 book a day for 3 years = 1096 books
3 books a day for 1 year = 1096 books

Join the program by signing up at the circulation desk.

Get a log and cross off a symbol for each book your child reads - no need to list each individual book!

Which books "count"?

  • Repeats
  • Books your child heard in storytime (virtual or otherwise)
  • Books read to your child by family and friends
  • Books your child listened to via audiobook

Win a prize for every 100 books you read and advance your caterpillar token up the ladder!
