All the fun of the Little Red Reading Bus, but indoors for the winter! The West Fargo Library’s indoor pop-up library at South Elementary features everything you love about visiting the bus, but inside instead. The pop-up library includes books to read and checkout, treats and games for all ages, friendly library staff who love to play and read with you, a safe space to hang out with friends and tons of fun.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program

The library’s new 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is for children ages 0 – 5 and their parents. The goal is just what it sounds like – to read 1000 books with your child before they head to school. Families who sign up receive a free kit filled with resources to help parents reach this goal, incorporate reading, talking, writing, singing and playing into activity at home, and start their child’s education on the right foot. The kit includes a free tote bag, a free book to start the child’s collection, a 1000 Books challenge tracking booklet, easily applicable tools and tips for parents and more. Along the way, children earn fun and educational rewards for reaching reading milestones. The rewards also support their early literacy skill growth. Interested families can sign up and receive their kit at the service desk at the West Fargo Public Library or register online at westfargolibrary.org/beanstack and then visit the library to pick up their kit.
