    Resources for Families

The library offers many free programs, activities and resources for all ages such as story times and workshops that support important literacy skills and lifelong enjoyment of books and reading.  Research shows that children, who are read to have increased vocabulary, increased listening skills and enter school ready to learn.  Children who participate in summer reading programs not only avoid “summer slide” in learning, but also score higher on reading achievement tests that those who do not participate.
