Children’s Program

Discover space with A Universe of Stories this summer! Children up to 12 years old can join our Children’s Summer Reading Program beginning Monday, May 13 at any Lafayette Public Library location or online. There will be loads of free programs like storytelling, crafts, music, puppetry, and more. For more details, call 261-5779 or pick up a BookTalk.

Children can log their reading minutes on an official reading record from their library or online. The reading record has 50 reading stars that each represent 10 minutes of reading. For instance, if the child reads for 30 minutes, he or she may color in three reading stars. Younger children may participate by counting the minutes that someone reads to them. When children have read (or listened to) a total of 500 minutes, they will earn the Summer Reading Prize Pack! Alternately, children can also earn a Prize Pack by reading 400 minutes and completing at least 2 activities.
