It’s Kansas Reads to Preschoolers Month!

The State Library’s 16th annual one-book/one-state reading initiative, Kansas Reads to Preschoolers, highlights the importance of reading to children with a goal that every Kansas child from birth to age five is read to throughout the month of November.
Because we are unable to meet for story times in November due to Covid-19, one of the factors for choosing this year’s Kansas Reads to Preschoolers Month title is that it is available digitally on Bookflix, which all Kansas residents can access for free through the State Library’s website.
Listen to the read aloud book Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs, by Eric Litwin.
Visit the library and tell me the answer to what Joe said “It’s Awesome to _____” and receive your plush Hooty Owl.

Library Receives Kansas Libraries Care Grant

We are excited to announce that Bronson Public Library received a grant from the Kansas State Museum and Library Services @USIMLS!

This $500 grant award is greatly appreciated and will be used for purchasing personal protective items, virtual webcam and cleaning supplies to provide a safer library experience for our community due to COVID-19.

Family Reading Partners

Family Reading Partners
Reading incentive program
for the whole Family

Along with our summer’s program for the month of August we will be having “Family Reading Partners”. This is a reading incentive program for the whole family to participate in together.

The pull of electronic games and social media is overwhelming, and at times, it seems impossible to get your family (and yourself) to look up from your phone to enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Luckily, summer offers several opportunities to have fun with your family, and reading is one of them. An easy and wallet-friendly way to get out of the house and have fun with your family is to go to the library. As an added bonus, you’ll get quality bonding time and create memories with your brothers, sisters, kids and/ or spouse—something you’ll appreciate now and in the years to come. So pry away the phones and game controllers, grab your family, and head to the library.

Rules

Each family’s total goal is reading 25 books for the month of August.
Book may be read by a family member together or individually.
When the given number is completed the family will receive a prize, gets their name post in the library and our Facebook page for all to congratulate their accomplishment.
Families get to pick a book of their choice to add to our library. Your families name will be printed on a plaque and placed inside the book.
