1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a tracking system that encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters school. Ransom Library is participating in this program with other Allegan County libraries, thanks to a generous grant from the Allegan County United Way and Volunteer Center.
Don't let the big number intimidate you - if you read 2 books to your child at bedtime every night, you will complete 730 books in the next year alone! If this sounds daunting, then you could aim for one book per day for three years or even ten books per week for two years. The words your child will be exposed to by listening to these thousand books will drastically improve their vocabulary, which primes them for reading success once they start school. Pick up your packet today!
If you have questions about this program or need suggestions for good books to read to your preschool child, ask for Erin or Macy.
Dr. Seuss Night
Tuesday, March 7 at 7 p.m.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Ransom Library
The tradition continues as the Friends of RDL put on their annual Dr. Seuss program. Local dignitaries will read Seuss classics, The Cat and friends will roam the building, and fun will be had by all. You don't want to miss it! Or, as Dr. Seuss himself wrote, "Oh the things you can find, if you don't stay behind!"
>>> We will be around during Spring Break! If you are having a "stay-cation" this spring, be sure to check Facebook or the library's web page to see our lineup of youth events. Details will be available starting on Dr. Seuss Night (March 7).
After School Programs
Preschool activities take place every weekday at 10:30 a.m. This session runs September 12 through December 21. Programs will be 30-45 minutes in duration.
