Grab-And-Go Storytime Kits

Ms. Terika offers a new Storytime-to-go kits each week. Each kit will have an educational activity and a craft for the week's theme! Pick up will be at the table in front of the Children's Information Desk, starting Mondays at 9am, and will be available until supplies run out. Please wear a face covering and follow our Social Distancing Policy when you pick up your kits!

StoryWalk®

Stop by for a stroll through our StoryWalks! StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. The StoryWalk begins near the entrance of the library, and follows the sidewalk to our beautiful Patrons Park!

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

This free program encourages you to read 1000 books with your child before he or she enters Kindergarten. This goal was set by experts who say children need to hear at least 1000 books to help them learn to read for themselves. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books each and every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation — a key to school success. Plus reading together is fun and a great way to bond and relax. The program has no end date except for when your child starts school, so don’t feel rushed—just enjoy the experience! Take every chance to read with your child. You will share many special moments along the way. Find out more about 1,000 books before kindergarten

Kiwanis Early Risers Family Programs

Once a month, the West Bend Library hosts a fun, family-friendly special performer. Music, magic, comedy, and more come to the West Bend community for free thanks to the Kiwanis Early Risers. Programs typically run about 45 minutes. Check our calendar to see more information about what's coming soon!

Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanians of The West Bend Early Risers work together to achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. Early Riser fund raising events - including the Souper Bowl Saturday Soup and Chili Cook Off, the Duck Derby, and Go-Kart racing - help support a variety of youth-oriented community programs. Their focus is to make West Bend, Wisconsin a better place to live. Wherever there’s a need, Kiwanians will be there – as they have for over 100 years, making a difference for children and for their communities.
