Stop by the Children's Room Information Desk for a Baby Bingo card. The early literacy activities on the Bingo card are designed with baby in mind! Every time you do one of the activities, put an "x" through it. Once you've completed the card stop back at the Desk for a free board book for baby. There are four titles so we encourage you to do the activities repeatedly and collect all four!

It's never too early to start reading to your child. With this early literacy program, we're encouraging you to commit to reading 1,000 books to your child before they go to kindergarten. Children who listen to 500 books will earn a book to keep and those who reach 1,000 will receive a commemorative "1000BBK" tee shirt.
Stop by the Children's Room for details and to sign up. This is an ongoing program so you can sign up anytime.
