7 More Kids Read 1,000 Books

In the last several months,  Micah B., Sam H., Noah G., Jaxon C., Abbey B., Aubrey H., and Cara M. finished their goal of reading 1,000 books before kindergarten! One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time with your kids each day sharing stories.

If you have a child who has not yet entered 5K, consider signing them up for our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club. Reading with your child will build a solid foundation of pre-reading skills that will ensure your child enters 5K ready to succeed in school! As an added bonus, when your child completes the program, they have the option of riding on the library float in the Cow Chip parade.

Congratulations kids and parents!

Culver’s Coloring Program

April 12-18 is National Library Week, but Culver’s has decided to celebrate libraries all month long! The home of the Butter Burger is once again sponsoring a coloring program all month long. Children ages 4-11 are invited to draw a picture celebrating their favorite book by drawing and coloring a character, event, scene, or anything else about the book and returning the drawing to the library. They will get a coupon for a free scoop of Culver’s custard and be entered into a drawing for a special prize at the end of the month.

Stop by the library to pick up a coloring sheet or download the official Culvers Coloring Program coloring sheet and print it at home. Take a look at our Facebook page to see the finished works of art as they come in.
