Kids and Teens

 

One of the most important things you can do for your child is read aloud for fifteen minutes a day. Our commitment is to make this project easy and interesting to both of you. We have a wide variety of age appropriate books that will make read aloud time a productive and valuable time for both you and your child. With the exception of our Storytime, all other classes have fees, a portion of which benefit the library.

Concurso de Lectura de Verano 2021.  Con la ayuda de 50 de los niños y adultos jóvenes de nuestra biblioteca alcanzamos nuestra meta de 500 títulos.

Y enviaremos nuestro cheque por la cantidad de $250 al BCGPR para su nuevo rincón de lectura en uno de sus clubes.
