“Read with Me” and “Sing-Along” For Families

Read with Me

During the school year, our older students enjoy time in our Books for Kids Library. When classrooms arrive at the library, they are paired up with a volunteer who reads books to them. After their reading session, children choose a book to take home forever to build their personal library.

While students cannot currently enjoy a visit to the Books for Kids library, we thought we would bring reading to students online. Next Door staff, volunteers and community members have recorded themselves reading books for you and your child to enjoy. Check back often for new videos!
