Curious George Reading Program Launched

Curious George Reading Program for Children Ages Four-Years-Old and Younger!

The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library is kicking of a new reading program especially for very young children from birth through age four. The youth services librarians encourage you to spend time each day reading with your child. It's never too early to start sharing the love of books with a child.

Stop by the library to pick up your Curious George Reading Program bag to get started! Each bag contains a Curious George reading log, gameboard to record each day you read with your child, a sticker, bookmark, craft, and an application for your child's first library card. Each week the library will have a new craft and early literacy tip to share with families participating in the program.

The library will also be celebrating with a Curious George Ice Cream Social for all families participating in the program this summer:
