You are invited to our first Family Literacy Event at Centre Mall on Tuesday, August 13, 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM. We are planning a variety of activities which will include several short storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers throughout the evening, including bilingual storytime. Children will be able to participate in a “Book Walk” to win books and small prizes.  Ice cream from Culvers and fresh popcorn will be provided. Several tables will be set up with important information on early childhood literacy and staff will be around to answer questions about the literacy programs at Sioux Center Public Library. Kir Cosgrove, Recreation and Arts Council, will set up tables with art projects for the children. Join us for a fun and informative evening. Our goal is to see every child who comes with an adult leave with a book. Make sure you mark the date on your calendar. You won’t want to miss it.


Also coming in August – A New Beginning for our 5th/6th Grade Book Club!!  This fun book club will be continuing throughout the school year, meeting quarterly.  We’d love to have your kids join us!  We will be meeting Thursdays, August 1 and August 8, from 10:30-11:30.  Stop in or call and talk to Judy or Becky and sign up – we are taking signups for our August group!
