A good book ~ A special invitation
A life-time learning experience









Introducing the OWL Reader Club for children preschool to grade 3. 
Reading is one of the most important skills to lead to success in school and life. By making reading a positive, rewarding and worthwhile endeavor, a life-time learning experience is developed. This is why we’re introducing the OWL Reader Club for preschool to grade 3.

When children take out books from the library, it’s a time to bond together when sharing the book or a time for independent learning when reading alone. Both are free from homework assignments or pressure. It’s just pure fun and reward.

Each time your child visits the library and checks out at least one book, the OWL Reader Club bookmark will get hole-punched. Get your bookmark hole-punched five times during a session, and your child will be invited to a special invitation-only reader club celebration! 

The OWL Reader Club session will happen three times a year and will feature a favorite children’s book character.

The first session starts September 1 and ends November 5. Join today! To learn more and to register, stop by the front desk.
