Stuffed Animal Sleepover!
Thursday, May 23 | 3:30PM
Bring a furry friend for a sleepover at the library! Join us for a storytime and a craft, then tuck your friend in for a night of adventure. Return the next morning to see what they did! We recommend bringing a stuffed animal your child is comfortable sleeping without for the night. Registration is required for this event, as space is limited. You can register here!

The event will run from 3:30-4:30PM on Thursday, May 23. You can pick up your stuffed animal on Friday, May 24, beginning at 11AM (or anytime throughout the day). Pictures will be posted to our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram throughout the evening, so tune in to see what your furry friend gets up to!

1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Ready Your Child for a Lifetime of Reading
Research suggests that children need to hear about 1,000 books before they begin to read independently. Reading to children increases their vocabulary and improves comprehension, listening and narrative skills, as well as building traits like self-awareness, confidence, and empathy. Prepare your child for a lifetime of reading by sharing books together! Sign your child up for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten at the Baker Free Library, and earn prizes for every 100 books you share together. This program is ongoing; register anytime.
