Each February, hardworking area kindergarten teachers connect their students to our kindergarten library card campaign. Our goal is for every child to have the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of books, classes, and events available to them at the public library. With the teachers' help, students can easily register for a public library card and take an important step toward lifelong reading and learning.
Connecting with kindergartners in this way would be impossible to do without the teachers. This year, thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, one teacher at each branch was randomly selected to receive a Friends' book bag filled with wonderful books for their classroom.
Kindergarten students can join in the fun, too! Any time between now and May 31st, bring your child to any branch. Tell someone at the Children's Desk that he or she is in kindergarten to receive a free prize.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Kindergarten Library Card Campaign teacher prizes!
