We are pleased to offer our patrons the resource, Teaching Books, which is an engaging collection of 234, 583 resources that bring Children’s and Young Adult books to life.

Raise a Reader!

Parents with young children, remember to sign up for our Raise a Reader program if you haven’t yet.  The program maintains 1,000 books at the Library and has divided them into 100 beautifully silk-screened bags of 10 books each.  Using their library cards, parents are able to sign out a bag of ten books for a two week period and then return it for another bag.  The goal is to have 1,000 books read to or with a child by the age of 6.
