Looking for the best way to give your children a head start for kindergarten and elementary school? Read with them! The "1,000 Books B4 Kindergarten" reading log will allow you to keep track of all the books your child reads or that someone reads to your child. Include stories that your child hears at the library, in preschool or daycare and while attending religious services. All books and stories count!
The library cannot accommodate day cares and other groups at our public programs but we can offer tours or storytimes as staff and time permit.
Additional program offerings co-sponsored by local community groups include:
Baby Dayzzz: Join Ms. Charlotte and Ms. Jess for a free, interactive, on-the-lap and in-the-arms storytime for babies under 12 months of age. Featuring gentle rhymes, songs, music, and movement, Baby Dayzzz is the perfect time to introduce your baby to storytime at the library. Storytime is followed by an informational session where you can socialize with other caregivers and get answers to all your parenting and newborn questions while your baby plays with toys and books. A certified lactation consultant and a speaker will present on various topics each session. Baby Dayzzz is held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 9:30 at the Fayette County Public Library.
CAREing Paws is a volunteer organization that brings pet therapy animals to the library so kids can practice (or show off!) their reading skills. RSVP required monthly. Call 770-305-5328.
