Early Literacy Programs
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Reading aloud to your child is the best way to prepare them for reading and writing success in school. 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a free program that encourages you to read one thousand books with your child before he or she begins kindergarten. It's easy, fun, and a great way to bond with your young child.
|Born to Read|
Sponsored by the Midland County Public Library Foundation in partnership with Midland County Public Libraries, Midland Health, and the Permian Basin Area Foundation. Each month, the Libraries will host a Born to Read Birthday Party for children who celebrate their birthdays during that month. Each child participating will receive a birthday shoutout and a free book to take home!
For Parents & Caregivers
For the safety and comfort of children, a responsible adult must accompany children under age ten (10) when they are using the library premises. This responsible individual must supervise, guide, and control the behavior of his/her charge/charges at all times.
