Young readers week at Naperville Public Library starts November 8

Creating a love of reading and books is so important. As a Naperville resident, our family is so lucky to have many programs that promote reading in young children.

Starting on Sunday, November 8 through Saturday, November 14, all Naperville Public Library locations will be celebrating Young Readers Week. The theme of the week is Pop Open a Good Book.

Each Naperville Public Library location will be hosting activities, games and crafts. Every day there will be an interactive activity to promote literacy.

The Children's desk at each location will have a Guessing Jar Challenge. Children can enter their prediction for a chance at a raffle prize.

Also, children can answer a question about their favorite storybook character to win a pencil.

Children who wish to participate in the contest must have a Naperville Library card.

If your family has not used the new Naperville Public Library website, check it out. There's a special children's section with information on finding a good read, computer games, ebooks and homework help.

Hopefully this week's special program will spark an interest in books and some of the NPL's programs. While your family is at the library why not try Make It Take It or Family Story Time.

It's been said many times, but a love of reading starts young but lasts a lifetime.

  1. Cristine,
    Thanks for this columm. You are so right about a love of reading starting young. Just as critical is learning the reading is important. Even if your children don't read for fun, they need to know about reading for information -- whether it's the TV schedule or finding out about a sports star. Reading is vital in today's busy world.
