Let reading together create a lifelong bond between you and your child!

Reading, Talking, Singing, and Playing with your child everyday are simple but powerful activities that prepare your young child to be ready to learn how to read.  Reading together is a beautiful bonding activity and it creates a safe and cozy place for enjoying the magic of picture books. 

Timberland Regional library and Nikki McClure, local artist and children’s book author, have teamed up to create Grow a Reader, an early learning reading engagement activity for you and the young children in your life. It’s a beautiful keepsake piece containing Nikki’s artwork, where you can track the favorite books you share with your child from infancy to Kindergarten.  Pick up one at any TRL library; and while you’re at it, get your child their first library card with a matching design.
