Celebrate Young Readers

“Few children learn to love books by themselves. Someone has to lure them into the wonderful world of the written word: someone has to show them the way.”
–Orville Prescott

Kids who read are smarter, better, faster, stronger. Okay, they might not necessarily be all of those things but they are really cool and well-read. And that counts for a lot! Research shows that children who read books for just 20 minutes a day perform better in school.

What is your favorite children’s book? Share that book with a child. Read with a child; it's the most important 20 minutes of your day.

Stop by the Lewis Library and browse the stacks on the 3rd floor; you can check out one of the timeless tales or one of the new arrivals intended for children but adored by adults! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, make a suggestion and we’ll work on getting it for you!
