Wise Owls

owl in treeThe Wise Owl reading program runs ALL year! 

Attention, preschoolers, toddlers, babies, and parents! Become a Wise Owl today and try to read 1,000 books before kindergarten, logging them 100 at a time, earning prizes and owl decorations for the library as you go.

Does 1,000 books sound daunting? It’s not! If you read one book per day for three years, OR ten books per week for two years, OR three books per day for one year, you’ll have read OVER 1,000 books! Every book counts – whether it’s the first time you’re reading it, the hundredth, or the thousandth! If you come to a library storytime, you’ll definitely get to mark off a few books, too.

Stop by the Youth & Teen Department today to sign up to be a Wise Owl and complete the challenge of reading 1,000 books before kindergarten.
