Summer Reading 2017

Calling all readers!

Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers

June 15th will kick off the start of our year-round 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge!  As daunting as that number might seem, it’s as easy as reading three books a day for a year.  Think about all of the times you’ve been asked to read a favorite book again, and again, and again … every re-read counts!  Online participation is convenient and portable; paper reading logs are also available at the library.
