Your Kids Connection

Kids can connect to an exciting section of the library designed just for them. Hardly a day goes by when we don’t have something going on for kids, from babies and tots to teens.

Take home a good book from our huge library. Get a music cd or an age-appropriate movie. Internet computers are also available in the Children's Library for online research. Don't forget to check out our calendar for upcoming storytimes and more!

The Garland County Library and the 1,000 Books Foundation invite you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she starts kindergarten.

Studies have shown that reading with your child provides a great opportunity for bonding as well as preparing him or her for school. Reading together is fun and will create life-long memories for both of you.

Start reading early. Begin any time from your child’s birth until he or she enters Kindergarten. Read at your own pace and enjoy your time together.

Every book counts. You may include the books read to him or her by parents, caregivers, teachers, librarians, or siblings. You can even repeat books or listen to audiobooks.

Add a sticker to the library sticker chart for every 100 books read, earn a pick-a-book when you reach 500 books read, and earn a special prize when you reach 1000 books.
