Reading

A strong reader is set up to succeed.

Developing a love of reading doesn’t happen overnight. Let us help with programs and services that make reading fun.

  • Readers who read for fun are usually stronger readers
  • Reading skills strengthen the ability to learn across all academic subjects, not just reading
  • And equally important, reading books, especially fiction, fosters emotional development and empathy

Have Questions?
How can I find books for leveled reading programs, like Accelerated Reader?

The advanced search in our catalog has filters for AR Bookfinder, Lexile and Reading Counts, which will let you search by a specific reading level and library location. They're also listed in the catalog record details for most titles.

Can I bring my dog to Read to a Dog?

We ask that you leave pets at home. We partner with Lend A Heart and other local nonprofit organizations to offer our programs with specially trained and certified therapy dogs (and a few good bunnies).

Does my library branch offer Read to a Dog or tween book club?

You can see which libraries offer these programs with our event search tool. If a library near you doesn’t offer this program, talk to your librarian or contact us to let us know you’d be interested.
