1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program encouraging you to read 1,000 books with your child before they start kindergarten. The program is self-paced and you decide how often and how long you will read to your child. It can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. When you register for the program, you can come pick up a welcome packet, including a finger puppet and physical reading logs to color in! There will also be occasional surprises throughout the game, like stickers, a halfway-there certificate, and more (you can even earn a happy dance with a librarian)! When you finish the program, you’ll receive a graduation certificate, an invite to a quarterly themed storytime, a free book, and a farm friend adoption kit (just a stuffie, not a real one). Sign up online.
Presented by the Autism Society of Indiana, this program will educate individuals and organizations on basic information about autism, including behavioral, communication, and social challenges that individuals and their caregivers often experience. Strategies for assisting individuals on the autism spectrum are also covered. Age 18 and up. Please register. You will be emailed the Zoom link to this program upon registration.
A partnership between the Autism Society of Indiana and the Library.
Come design your own charm with our 3D printing software! We'll guide you through the creative process using Tinkercad, and each participant will get a copy of every charm from the program to make a necklace or bracelet. Masks are required. Ages 7–12. Please register. Please note, 3D printing takes time. You will need to return to the Library at a later date to pick up your creation.
