Learning Outside the Box Bins
*NEW* at the library! Check out a Learning Outside the Box bin! These learning bins are meant for middle-school aged kids through teens. Each box has a theme and contains books, games, manipulatives, and worksheets centered around a topic. We currently offer the following themes: Human Anatomy, Mind Games, Pioneer Life, and Coding for Kids.
This free program encourages you to read 1000 books with your child before he or she enters school. Signing up for the program is easy! Just stop by the library to register.
You can track progress on your phone or tablet by downloading the free 1000 Books Before Kindergarten App. Or, you can track your progress on paper tracking sheets provided by the library.
For every 100 books your child reads, he or she will receive one animal finger puppet. When you read 1000 books together, your child will have a full ten animal finger puppet set. He or she will also receive a brand new book.
