Preschool children can attend Story Hour on Tuesday at 10:00 am and Saturday’s at 1:00 pm. Toddler Time is Thursday at 10:00 am. We hope visiting the library with your child is part of our weekly routine.
Summer Reading registration starts on Monday, June 5th. Stop by and pick up reading logs for kids and a calendar of events. Prizes will be awarded to every child who turns in a reading log at the end of the summer.
We have hundreds of buggy prizes for kids who join the Buggy Book Club. Last year, the Allen County Primary students won a day of inflatables for their school because so many kids visited the library during summer break. It will be fun to see which school wins a prize this year.
