Featured Collection: Children’s Audio Books

The children’s Department has two types of audio books.  For the younger children there are books with the CD so they can follow along with the story. Looking at the book while listening reinforces reading skills. For the older children there are chapter books on CD that allows their imagination to flourish. These both make great travel companions.  Also, we have free streaming and downloadable audio books for children of all ages on Overdrive.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

This is a great way to start the preschoolers by reading with your child and loving books. We will give you the sheets to keep track of the titles as they are being read. Even if you read the same book more than once it counts. Show us the sheets as they are being completed. There is a measuring chart at the library in the children’s room that tracks your child’s progress. Watch as your child’s name climbs after each sheet of 100 is recorded and they’re progress moves up towards the 1000 books goal. Once completed they will receive a free book of their choice. For more information stop by the library.
