READING AND LITERACY PROGRAMS:
1000 Books Before Kindergarten : In August 2014, The Mary L. Cook Public Library launched a new literacy program, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. We have 15 readers who have completed the goal of 1000 books! If you read your child one book a day, she/he will reach 1,000 books in under three years. Though the goal of this program is to improve literacy skills, but even more, it’s about time spent together reading. Stop in today and ask us how to register your child for this program.
STORYTIME SUPERSTARS: Come to storytime at the Mary L. Cook Public Library and get a stamp! When you have 10 stamps on your Storytime Superstar card, you will earn a free book!
