Preschool Story Hour

Story Hour is every Tuesday morning at 10:00. We are doing the ABCs! We read books, do games and crafts, and finish the time with a treat to take home. It’s a relaxed time where we have fun and just enjoy our time together. We would like to welcome all preschoolers to come join us for a little social interaction and a good time!

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers is an annual event that promotes reading to all Kansas children from birth through age five.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

All children under 5 receive a free book each month. You can drop by the library and pick up an enrollment form or you can go to imaginationlibrary.com and sign your child up online. The first book will take 8-10 weeks to arrive.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

We are in the process of putting the finishing touches on this program. Lincoln Library, Hardtner Library, and Kiowa Library are all working together so the program will be uniform countywide. We should be ready to start enrolling children soon!

Summer Reading Program

The theme for the 2020 Summer Reading Program will be “Imagine Your Story”. We are planning some changes, including starting the first of July and going to the beginning of school in August.  We’re also wondering about changing the program times from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Another area which needs a little fine tuning is the present system of keeping track of either the hours or the number of books read. Keep an eye on this page for details!
