The Library is full of resources to support learning and literacy.

  • Thousands of books: board books, beginners and early reading, juvenile fiction and nonfiction.
  • 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten: this this family reading project for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers is a great way to help families prepare their preschoolers for later reading success. Experts believe that children need to have 1,000 books read to them before they start kindergarten. If you read 3 books to your child in one year, you will have read 1,095 books, and reading 10 books a week for 2 years, you will have read 1,040 books! Siblings, grandparents, caregivers can all get in on the action. Ask a staff member at the front desk for more information, or click here to be directed to information on our website.
