1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This free program encourages you to read 1,000 books to your child before they enter kindergarten – a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves.  Read three picture books a night and you will finish the program within a year!  See a Children’s Librarian for more information.

Attention Yarn Artists!

We are seeking donations of knit or crocheted flowers for a community art project. Any pattern, any color! If you don’t have a favorite pattern, we will have a list of links on our website (westburylibrary.org/childrens) and limited materials, on demand, at the Children’s desk. Please help us beautify the Library!
