Back to School

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
- Nelson Mandela

It's time for our kids to load up their backpacks with school supplies, put on their new clothes, and head back to school. It can be a hard transition going from the freedom of summer back to the responsibility of being a full-time student.

However, there are activities throughout the county to help your child say farewell to summer and prepare for the coming school year. Don't miss these great activities as we head back to school.

Find a Book by Reading Level

While it is most important to select books that your child enjoys to develop a love of reading, learning and libraries, the library system has plenty to offer that is appealing to both children and their teachers. Choosing books on the right level can help boost children's confidence and reading skills. Search for books by Lexile or Guided Reading levels here!*
