Children's Services: Fall 2021 Programming

One of the most important things a caregiver can do is read to their little one! Reading is the pathway to readiness when a child enters kindergarten. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a nationwide public charity promoting early literacy. The program encourages caregivers to track the number of books they have read to their little ones.

At Helen Hall Library, caregivers can use the Beanstack app to register and track books. There is a sticker for every 100 books read and a cute backpack when a child reaches the 1000 books.

Tickles, giggles, rhymes, and a story for those who BYOB (bring your own baby).
