1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Stop by the library anytime to sign your little one up for this amazing program! Receive a prize for every 100 books and upon finishing the programming, your child will receive a certificate of completion. 

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten.

If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so start now)!  https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org

Born To Read

If you are an expectant mother or new parent living in Kingman county – or know of one, please inquire about receiving a free book bag containing a Mother Goose book, bib, literacy literature, and a special poem. Babies are born to read, but they need a little help to get started!

Reading with Friends

This special time is for preschoolers ages 3-5. Each session includes a story plus a craft, game, song, activity, or presentation. Story times are on Friday mornings in the spring and fall.

Summer Reading Program

The program encourages your children to continue reading through the summer months. Special activities and programs are scheduled weekly from late May through July. Highlights of the program typically include storytimes, crafts, games, and more. Please watch our calendar on this website for updates.
