Important Message



Tadpole Readers is a fun, easy way to develop your child's pre-reading skills while you relax together over books. It is an ideal approach for nurturing a lifelong love of reading and libraries.

Each day a child and partner read for 15 minutes or more, update this electronic log OR mark the reading record provided with your Tadpole registration and come to the Library to have our teens or staff record your reading times online.
Come to the Library, talk about a book and enter to win a book in our weekly raffle and visit the Tadpole Treasure Chest. When you complete 300 minutes of reading, come in and choose a book from our selection of entertaining and award winning books.

The Tadpole Readers program ends Sunday, August 30, 2015.
