Kids

We love books and kids!  At the Lakeview Community Library we are thrilled to have kids of all ages visit us and spend time enjoying the many activities the Children’s Department has to offer.  We’re a kid friendly environment and nothing makes us happier than to hear them laughing, talking, playing, exploring, and learning at the library.

In addition to our regularly scheduled programs, there are lots of other ways to enjoy, explore, and learn at the library.  Check it out!

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Sharing books strengthens a child’s foundation for learning and makes them more ready for school.

The concept of the program is simple: read a book, any book, to your newborn, infant and/or toddler. The goal is to read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten (and yes, you can repeat books). Sign up can be done at anytime at the library.

500 Books Before Middle School

The concept of the program is simple: read a book, any book, and have fun! The goal is to read 500 books before your child starts middle school (and yes, you can repeat books). If you read 2 books a week, you will have read 104 books in a year. That is 208 books in two years and 312 books in three years! You have more time than you think to complete the 500 Books Before Middle School challenge!

Enrollment can begin at any time and for any child not yet in middle school.  Best of all, you can complete the program at your own pace!
