Studies show that the more your read to your child the better prepared for school they are. To support and encourage reading from an early age we continue to offer our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program. All you do is log the reading you and your little one do. Once you reach the goal of 1000 your child will receive a free book for their home library! To log books for our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program or receive personalized book recommendations for your child head over to Beanstack.

Supervision of Children Policy

The library is a public place, and as such, cannot be responsible for unattended children. For their safety and protection: Children under the age of seven must be accompanied and adequately supervised by an adult throughout the building. Children 7-11 years of age must have an adult in the building.
