Welcome to the Fennville District Library
October Events 2016
Fennville District Library will launch a farm-themed "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" program this fall with several other Allegan County libraries. Allegan County United Way has generously partnered with the libraries to offer special incentives and prizes, including book bags, stickers, and a library cow bell, for area children to take part in the program. The free program begins at Fennville District Library on Friday, October 14th at 10:30 am with a bilingual preschool farm story time. Reading 1,000 books to your child may sound like a lot but it's really easy! To reach the goal, read one book to your child each day for three years, or ten books a week for two years, or twenty books a week for one year. Reading to your child is one of the best ways to prepare her or him for school. The library will offer lots of encouragement and fun, including a farm-themed play area for young children. For more details, stop by Youth Services in the lower level. Sign-up is available every day, beginning October 14th.
The library will celebrate Goose Festival on October 8th and 9th with a Student Art Show in the lower level. The Friends Of Fennville District Library will also offer a Book Sale in the library's bookstore.
