The Public Library Visits Kindergarten in the Media Center
Kindergarteners all received a public library card this week from Ms. Kitchen, the Anderson Children's Public Librarian Assistant.
This is an incentive program from the state of Ohio in which all libraries can partner with schools to issue a card to all kindergarten students. This is a special card that doesn't charge fees and allows children to check out up to 8 books.
It is amazing how many children in today's world still don't visit the public library. Maybe I am a little bias but it is such an amazing place with so much too offer. From books, to various types of media, to makerspace events, to helping with technology issues, and so much more. Kids need to be taught what a special place this is and how it can help them locate and analyze information.
