The library is offering a new early literacy program. All preschool children (newborn to kindergarten) can join. Parents (and grandparents, too) are encouraged to read to their children. Just 3 books a day and you’re at 1,000 books in one year. Each child will receive a passport and a sticker and a prize at each 100 level. They will also be able to place a star on our Solar System bulletin board. When they have reached 1,000 books each child will receive a book, certificate, and a $50 savings bond.

Register and pickup the first reading list at the Library.
