Pre-school Story Time
Story time begins at 10:30 am on Wednesday and Friday mornings. The same program is offered on Wednesday and Friday of the same week. Story time lasts approximately 45 minutes to one hour. During this time children will listen to two or three books, sing songs, participate in activities, and create a craft revolving around a specific weekly theme. Our story time programs are designed to teach preschoolers creative expression, social skills, listening and comprehension skills, the basics of reading through number and letter recognition, and aid in vocabulary building and cognitive development. All children are welcome to attend with an adult. Daycares are also welcome. Story time is a free program.
Summer Reading Program 2017
The theme for the 2017 Summer Reading Program is “Build a Better World!” Book reports and challenge sheets will be available to pick up during June. A prize will be awarded for each book report or challenge sheet completed and returned to the library. More information will be available in spring 2017.
Join us Fridays in July and August at 11:00 am on the grass across from Veterans’ Memorial Park for Book-A-Lunch! Kids are encouraged to bring a blanket and a sack lunch while we read to you in the park.
Adult Book Groups
We have two adult book groups that meet at the library. One book group meets the last Monday of the month at 1:30 pm and the other group meets the second Thursday of the month at 4:00 pm. New members are always welcome.

The annual book sale is held each year in August during Kenyon’s Rose Fest celebration. The sale is located in the city hall council chambers, which is in the same building as the library. The remaining materials that do not sell in the annual book sale are moved into the library for our on-going book sale that continues through November. Please contact the library if you would like more information about the book sale.
