For every activity, babies and toddlers earn a fun badge and a ticket to put towards a choice of prize! Babies & toddlers that complete all 25 activities earn even more chances of being a grand prize winner.   


The idea is simple: Read to your little one to better prepare them for one of life's early milestones, kindergarten. 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten encourages the social, emotional, and cognitive development needed for little ones to succeed in school. Any child from birth until he or she enters kindergarten may participate in the program. Register for free and track your reading with the Beanstack app. For every 100 books you read together, visit the Library to receive a prize! For more information, please visit our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten page here.

Registration for summer programs begins on Monday, May 3. To register for programs, please visit our Events Calendar here. The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our top priority.
