1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Sign your child up for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program! This is a great opportunity to get your child ready for Kindergarten. Earn prizes along the way!

Kids’ Art Space
Did you know we have a designated wall just for kids’ art in the Children’s Department? Bring a painting, drawing, sketch, scribble, or other work of art that your child made and we will hang it up! Write your child’s name and your phone number on the back so we can return it to you after a month. Your child will be so proud to hang their artwork up!
