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?
My kids have read all the books we have at home already, how can we get more?

Our librarians, would love to help you find some great reads to enjoy at home as a family. If you need some inspiration, try our personalized reading recommendations and we’ll send you a list of titles.

Or send us a Personal Shopper request, and we’ll prepare a customized selection that you can pickup curbside.

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.

Do you offer tween or teen book clubs?

We host a Tween Comic Book Club on the second Friday of each month at 4 p,m, on Facebook Live.
