Join us to celebrate with libraries across the country and around the world. Welcoming families with fun activities!

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!
