The North Plains Public Library helps support Early Literacy by providing age-appropriate storytimes for children from birth to age five.
Children’s storytime is held every Wednesday morning from 11:30 am to noon at the library.
Each week features a special guest reader.
Every year, the North Plains Public Library hosts a Summer Reading Program, and all children and teenagers are welcome to join! Summer Reading Program activities include family storytimes, special programs and performers, and events and programs just for teens. All babies, toddlers, kids, and teens who register for Summer Reading will be given a reading log to record what they read (or what is read to them, for little ones) during the summer. All program finishers earn a free reward book! Other rewards for program finishers include coupons for summer fun activities, and a special discount day at Oaks Park.
TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.
Fingerplays and rhymes are wonderful literacy builders! They encourage conversations, beg to be sung and are built around a love of play. Fingerplays and rhymes are infectious and fun! Enjoy these videos of Washington County librarians demonstrating some of their favorite rhymes.
