Countdown to Kindergarten

If you're a subscriber to the library's News & Events blog/newsletter, you already know that we will be hosting a program for children to get ready for kindergarten. You can supplement this special program with online activities from the Countdown to Kindergarten Web site. Organized by month, every activity is "kid tested" and most can be done with things already in your home. Each month’s activity includes children’s books about similar topics that you can get at the library to read together. You/your kindergartner may also want to check out some of the library's books that feature kindergartners. When you're at your local library, be sure to also ask a children's librarian for our printed brochure on Recommended Reading for Preschoolers and Kindergartners.
