1,000 Books B4 KWe’re starting a new program, “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten”!
Any preschool baby, toddler, or child can participate.
We have reading logs for you to keep track of how many books you read together.
Children who are read to at an early age are more successful in school,
have bigger vocabularies when they enter school,
and it’s so important to their brain development.
Spread the word!

The sale earned $1,276.85, and the silent auction $20 for the
Friends of the Galesville Public Library! Wow, that’s wonderful.

Stop in the library during Apple Affair on Saturday to see this wonderful collection of postcards, which are on loan to us from Barb Longwell. Maybe you could identify some of the people and locations on the postcards for us. We will be sharing them in a searchable online form through the ongoing Winding Rivers Library System ECHO project. ECHO stands for Exploring Cultural History Online. The site features photos from 24 libraries participating in the project. The site can be found at <http://wrlsweb.org/echo/>.
