The Webb Library has a wonderful collection of children’s, juvenile, and young adult books for ages 0-18. The lower level of the library houses the charming children’s room and our collection of picture books, first reader books, juvenile fiction, biography, and non-fiction books. A checkerboard game table, board games, puzzles, Legos and lots of stuffed animals to play with too.
We offer a weekly Preschool Storytime for ages 2-5 with their caregivers on Wed. and Thur. from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. This program helps to promote early literacy skills through reading, songs, games, and crafts.
Come start your child on their “Road to Reading”. This program is a nationwide challenge to encourage parents to read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000 book goal in just three years! The 1,000 Books program is available to all families with children between the ages of birth to five years. Prizes will be awarded at the 100 book milestones
The third Friday of the month the Webb hosts a night of “unplugged” fun for the whole family. We have pizza, board games, puzzles and Legos; not to mention just enjoying the library at night. This is a great way to meet other families and just spend time together away from all our gadgets! $5.00 per family for pizza.
Please call or e-mail and ask to be added to Ms. Laura’s email list at email@example.com, if you would like updates about this and other family events.
Reading Education Assistance Dogs, is a national literacy program. Cali and Sophie are certified therapy dogs and love to listen to children read. Young readers gain confidence reading to a non-judgemental furry friend. Cali and Sophie come the first Saturday of each month. Call or email Ms. Laura to sign your child up for a 15min time slot to read to Cali.
The Webb Library’s Summer Reading Program encourages and rewards all children to continue reading during the summer break, which helps prevent the dreaded Brain Drain. Our activities are designed to keep them reading and writing. Once you have registered you complete the activities and reading at home. Rewards are given as they complete activities, which encourages them to keep it up!
