NEW App for the library


Not a Box
by Antoinette Portis

is the 2022 choice for Kansas Reads to Preschoolers

We’ll be celebrating on Tuesday, November 8
with the USD 347 preschoolers during library story hour at the library.


A box is just a box . . . unless it’s not a box. From mountain to rocket ship, a small rabbit shows that a box will go as far as the imagination allows.

Inspired by a memory of sitting in a box on her driveway with her sister, Antoinette Portis captures the thrill when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes real—when the imagination takes over and inside a cardboard box, a child is transported to a world where anything is possible.

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers is an annual event that promotes reading to all Kansas children from birth through age five. Through the statewide program, parents, librarians and caregivers are encouraged to read the chosen title during a selected week and month.

1000 Books B4K is back

Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children from birth help to strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary – -two important tools for beginning to learn to rad when they enter kindergarten.   Bookmarks to log each time you read a book to your little one are now available at the library.  For every 100 books read, you child will get a treat and a sticker.  When they reach 1000 books, we’ll feature  them in the Edwards County Sentinel and give them a hardback book for a prize.
