supporting families to foster a love of reading 

Libraries are Great Places for Kids!

Taking your kids to the library encourages them to form a life-long love of reading. Libraries provide resources to the public for free, including books, movies, music, magazines, internet access and more. 

A positive experience with a parent at a library can help kids create positive feelings towards books and learning. Libraries also host events and classes for all ages: children, teens and adults. 

Stop by your local library this week!
