Ongoing Children's Programs

1000 Books before Kindergarten

Any child from birth to five years old can participate in our 1000 Books before Kindergarten program. Parents can sign their children up and start tracking the number of books read to their kids. For every 100 book milestone children will receive a small prize. When they have read 1000 books they will receive a book to keep as well as have their name placed on our 1000 books Wall of Fame located in the Children's Room.

 

Passport to Chemistry Adventure

Children in grades kindergarten through 6th grade are welcome to join the Chemistry Adventure program. Kids work with an adult partner who borrows individual kits from the library. At home they complete chemistry experiments then return to the library to receive small prizes after completion of 3.6.and 10 kits. This program is a collaboration with the Mount Holyoke College Chemistry Department. It's easy to participate. Fill out the easy registration form and then check out a kit with the adult’s library card. The program runs through May 1st every year.
