From the time they are babies and throughout their school years, the Library is an important part of the lives of our children.
For parents with babies and preschoolers, you’ll find regular storytimes filled with the magic of the spoken word, along with songs, activities, and the magic of learning. Even before they can speak, it is vital for children to hear the language of stories, as it nurtures their early brain development.
For children in their school years, the Library connects them with the joys and pleasures of reading, as well programs for hands-on learning and creativity. Many studies affirm that children who read, whether during their summer vacation or after-school or on weekends, are more likely to do better in school and be ready for learning year-round.
In the summer, a special part of the Library experience is the Summer Reading Program, which offers reading incentives as kids track their time spent reading. In 2019, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, this summer’s theme is “A Universe of Stories”.
