The goal of the Winter Reading Challenge is to help children find joy in reading and maybe discover a new “best friend.” It was developed for three different reading audiences.
• Ages 0–4: Includes activities that promote literacy and are fun for the child and caregiver to do together.
• Grades K–4: Your child is in control, setting reading goals and having an opportunity to spin a wheel and receive experiential learning activities to share with caregivers and friends.
• Grades 4–6: Tweens set their own reading goals and are invited to complete weekly STEM challenges.
The library is a busy place thanks to our customers, with nearly 90,000 people attending programs at the library in 2015. Check out our video featuring highlights of the past year, then see a list of upcoming programs at ahml.info.
Helping your child develop early literacy begins with cuddling up and sharing a good book. Research shows that children become readers on the lap of a caring adult. Join us as we reach for 1000!
