The Brown County Public Library provides many free services to children and families. The children’s area of the library is full of books, toys, games, puzzles, tablets, computers, and more for kids to play with anytime. Many reading programs that include young children can be found on the Library’s website.
Babies, the library’s youngest patrons, can receive a “Welcome Baby Bag” that includes a book, cd, finger puppet, and other materials to promote early literacy.
Pre-Kindergarten children can join the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative, designed to promote reading aloud, early literacy, and fostering a love of lifelong reading and learning.
