The library offers programming for infants, toddlers and preschoolers to help them acquire early literacy skills and a love of reading. Helping families connect with each other through books and music is a terrific way to help children develop a positive attitude towards reading and learning. As youth grow into elementary school students, programming evolves to help them become fluent library users. This means knowing what resources the library offers and how to access them. Library staff also help elementary students find books that are “just right for them” both in interest and in reading level. There is a perfect book for everyone; we just have to find it!
The library offers teen programming to create a space where teens feel welcomed. Teens are moving towards being independent library users. Library staff is available to teach information skills so that teens can navigate resources with confidence and privacy. Teens are invited to help share these skills with the library community by volunteering at events for younger users. There is no better way to master a skill than to share it with someone else!
