1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
Did you know that the average picture book takes five minutes to read? And three books a day would take only fifteen minutes of your day! At that rate, in one year, you could read 1095 books to your child. And that is the goal of our program.
Our program is open to all children who have not started kindergarten. Just come to the library and ask for a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten reading package. After you fill your first log with 100 books read, come back for a 100 books sticker and the next log and so on. When you reach 1000 books, your child will receive a certificate of completion and a book for your child to keep.

There is an App on iTunes for iPhones to keep track of your child's reading called One Thousand Books Before Kindergarten. Click here to go to their app webpage.
BACKPACKS for PRESCHOOL Early Literay Concepts will soon be available at our library. They may be checked out for one week. Each backpack focuses on a different concept and contains four board books, a DVD, a toy and a whiteboard with a marker.

Debt Reduction/Endowment Fund Campaign
The title of our new fundraising campaign is Larsen Family Public Library Debt Reduction/Endowment Fund Campaign. It will run through October 31. The purpose of the endowment fund is to establish a growing base from which only the interest will be expended. the long-term goal of an endowment is for it to be the major sustainability cushion for the library. Of the donations received, 80% will go to the $180,000 debt incurred during construction of the library building in 2011, and 20% to the endowment. However, if a gift is designated for one or the other, it will be applied as designated. We have coin containers that need to be filled..once a container is filled, the contents will go into the treasure chest in the library and a raffle ticket will be given to the donor. On October 31, a raffle will be held and one lucky person will win a new television. There are lots of other events in planning to try to raise funds to keep our library sustainable. Each year we have to pay a mortgage payment of $16,000. Thank you to all of the people on the fundraising committee working hard for their community!
