Parents, grandparents or guardians register your two year olds for this interactive, weekly program. Give little ones an opportunity to participate in a loosely structured learning environment with a dozen others in the same age group. Sit with your toddler for circle time while Librarian, “Ms. Larisa,” leads the group as they learn rhymes, matching, songs, and of course, enjoy a story or two! Occasional craft. Class size limited and a one- time registration for this program is required. Call or stop by the children's desk to register.
Upcoming plans are also underway for the annual Summer Reading Program with the theme, “Oceans of Possibilities.” The library will have a full summer schedule that includes musical theater, hands-on activities and other programs designed to engage young readers and get them excited about reading and learning. Mark you calendars for our summer reading kick-off Thursday, June 2!

Many children are motivated to read out loud when they have a canine reading partner. Especially one as patient and kind as Luna. Improves reading fluency, confidence and stamina.

Our library staff is always happy to help you find books and materials and make suggestions for your reading. Our PINES system allows you to place electronic holds for specific titles, and you can also call us at the library to assist you with this.
We also have a wonderful collection of electronic resources available for all ages. This includes our reading challenge program, Beanstack which allows you to keep a record of books read, time read, and more. Children 0-5 can take part of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program through Beanstack. Children 5 and older can track their favorite reads on the Best Reading List Ever Challenge. In addition to these ongoing challenges, we also have seasonal ones as well
These lists, published annually, are great tools for finding new books for children of all ages.
