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.
Join us as we create a safe space to discuss books written by and for LGBTQ+ individuals. In November and December, we'll discuss We Do This 'Til We Free Us: Abolitionist Organizing and Transforming Justice by Mariame Kaba. Participants can choose to join the Sunday sessions from 1:30–3 PM or the Monday sessions from 6–7:30 PM. Age 16 and up. Please register for the Zoom link and book by emailing Linds Badger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A partnership between Middle Way House and the Library.
Join us in the Tween Space to try out our new 3D printing pens and make a holiday decoration! Come with your own design template or use one of ours. Time will be limited to 10 minutes per individual, as we only have two pens––first come, first served. Ages 9–12. Masks are required for all children's events.
