National Young Reader's Week

Posted on:

We love to celebrate our young readers! This year, help us celebrate National Young Readers Week - from November 15 through November 19!  National Young Readers Week helps to highlight the importance of literacy and literature, and is the perfect time to ignite a passion for books in your little ones!

National Young Readers Week originated as something most of us Millennials will remember.  Imagine you're once again in elementary school, receiving a personal pan pizza for meeting your reading goal.  Sound familiar? Pizza Hut's BOOK IT! program is what kick started National Young Readers Week, but did you know it is still an ongoing program today?  Parents and schools can follow Pizza Hut's BOOK IT! program, for more information, click here.

If you want to celebrate at the Cape Girardeau Public Library, you have TONS of options!  Start each day by attending one of our beloved storytimes:

  • Tuesdays @ 11:00 - Preschool Storytime (ages 3-5)
  • Wednesdays @ 11:00 - Babybook (birth - 1)
  • Thursdays @ 11:00 - Toddlertime (1-3)

Please note, ages are encouraged, not enforced. Try out all three and see which one fits you best! We also love seeing those older siblings enjoying our storytimes!

You could also check out some of our fabulous books to read at home! Here are some that we recommend:
