  Read and Make Storytime Packs

Check out our Read and Make Storytime Packs to use for storytime at home. Our themed packs include books, craft supplies, and an activity sheet containing songs, rhymes, and activities. Visit this page to view the packs and watch the recorded stories read by staff.


  Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is designed to encourage a love of reading, teamwork, and to promote an interest in reading a variety of genres. Students from 4th & 5th grades create teams with an adult coach and read a selection of books chosen by the Library. In March, the teams come together for a literary "battle" to test their knowledge of the books. Registration for the 2023-2024 Battle of the Books will open November 1. Forms will be available at the Library.
