Children, Birth through Grade 5, are eligible to participate in our Youth Winter Reading Program. The Winter Reading Program is very simple; all you have to do is read out loud or be read to aloud for 15 minutes a day for 21 days. After you complete 21 days of reading out loud you get a little prize. School-aged kids are also eligible to participate in the first ever “Night at the Library” if they complete the program!
Reading together as a family is a fun and simple way to complete the reading program. Shared reading has numerous benefits including spending quality family time together, increasing attention spans, enhancing vocabulary, improving reading comprehension, and encouraging life-long learning.
If you are looking for a good book to read out loud as a family, POP by the Family Reads display in Youth Services. We have great books waiting to go home with your family.
