Children's Literacy

Shared Reading

We don’t just do summer reading programs here. Our Shared Reading program is designed to help your child keep up the good reading all year-round. The simple program encourages you and your child to become reading partners, as together you set reading goals and talk about what you read. You can create your own reward system for meeting your goals, but the library, through generous donations from local businesses, also provides several prizes for your child to choose from once a month. Sign up at the Children’s Reference Desk.

Welcome Baby: Ready to Learn

Every second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Media Auditorium. Join presenters from United Way of Utah County as they teach a class for parents introducing babies and young children to early literacy and education. Register for the free class HERE.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Click HERE to register for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. The concept is simple and the rewards are priceless. Read any book to your child–infant, toddler, or preschooler–until you have read 1,000 books together. After registering, come to the Childrens main floor reference desk to receive your first 100 books record log. Record each book you and and your child read together by simply marking the icon on the record sheet. You may read the same book multiple times. You can also count books heard at storytime, daycare and preschool.

After each set of 100 books is read and recorded, take your log to Children’s desk to receive the log for your next 100 books. Small rewards are earned with completion of 100 books and 500 books. After reading the 1000th book, your child will receive a certificate of completion, a free book, and will be eligible to attend the 1000 Books before Kindergarten Celebration.
