Don’t forget all of the library resources available to help start school off on the right foot and have a successful year. We have… research databases, computers, internet connections, study space, history and educational resources, friendly librarians to help you out… and loads of free interactive experiences and entertainment.
One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation, a key to school and learning success. By reading less than 3 stories a day, you and your child will have read over 1,000 books in one year! Not to mention, sharing stories together is fun.
How the program works:
Register and receive your library bag
Read to your child
Record each book read to your child
When you finish 500 books your child will receive a price
After finishing 1,000 books your child will receive
1-A graduation party
2-A certificate of completion
3-An awesome jump start on success in school
