READING PROGRAMS

 

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a new library program that encourages all Clinton families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten. Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary — two important tools when they begin learning to read in kindergarten. And it doesn't have to be 1000 new books, you can count that favorite bedtime story that's read every night. Click here for more information.

Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program is offered for 8 - 10 weeks beginning at the end of school in May/June and continuing through the end of July. This is a reading program for all ages. We also offer many special programs throughout the summer for children. 
 

Winter Reading Program

A Winter Reading Program is provided for 4 - 6 weeks in December and January. This is a reading program for all ages. We also offer special programs during this time that go along with the reading program's theme.
