Free books for 4-year-olds and Lifelong Learning for adults

For the fourth year, libraries across Colorado are giving a free book to every 4-year-old in the state from April 13-27 as part of a special family literacy project.

More than 75,000 copies of a book (its title is a secret until April 13) in either English or Spanish will be distributed to children statewide at local library events, including at your Sisson Library. The goal is to encourage families to read together every day and add new books to home libraries.

Come by the library or attend any program and pick up this free book for your 4-year-old youngster. Better yet, bring them in to pick up their books and see the opportunities for fun and learning that are available free at your library almost any day of the week. Kristine MacNeill, youth services librarian, also has arranged a special distribution to 4-year-olds at our community’s three preschools — Head Start, Seeds of Learning and Our Savior Lutheran School.
