Children's Programs

Programs for All Ages: 


1000 Books is a national program developed to encourage early literacy development by reading to young children. The program is simple. Pick up a reading log for the first 100 books at the Youth Services Desk or print online by clicking this link. Read 100 books together, then bring the completed log to the library to pick up your child’s recognition and the next reading log. The program lasts until you have read 1000 books with your child or they start kindergarten.1000 books may sound like a lot, but by reading just one book a night, you could read over 1000 books together in just three years.


The library has four Kindles available for check out for use by patrons ages 6 to 17.
Load a Kindle with up to four OverDrive titles and check them out for a period of three weeks. eReaders must be checked out on the parent's or legal guardian's library card. For more information about borrowing a Kindle, the policies, and FAQ, see the library website or contact the Youth Services staff at 989-837-3466.
