Sing a Story, Read a Song!

Music is Everywhere! Free Concert with Nan Hoffman

Join us in the Round Lake Auditorium (the big building across from Clark House) for a FREE performance by Nan Hoffman.

Music, especially folk music with its emphasis on lyrics and stories, can help enhance reading, writing and listening skills, and language development. Because American Folk Music has been influenced by people and traditions from around the world, Nan will share songs and instruments from other countries, songs that celebrate the music of nature and even songs that find their music in the rhythmic rubbish of our recycling bins!

Read Down Your Fines

Read Down Your Fines

Kids- Pay Your fines through reading!

30 minutes = $1.

It’s as simple as that.

Ask a librarian at the desk for a timer, grab a book/manga/graphic novel and read. When the timer is done, take your library card (or ID) back to the librarian and have a dollar taken off your account.

The catch? You have to read while being in the library. Well… you can probably sit out on the porch if you want.

1000 Book Kid Program

1000 Book Kid Program

Sponsored by the Malta Sunrise Rotary

The Malta Sunrise Rotary is sponsoring a 1000 Book Program at both branches of the Round Lake Library.  This free and easy reading program encourages preschoolers and their parents to borrow, share, and read together.

How It Works

  • Select and check out 10 children’s books
  • Inform the librarian that this is a 1000 Book Kid.  Your books will be put in a special bag
  • When you return your 10 books and bag, circle the next number on your child’s card. (each number represents a group of 10)
  • When you have circled 100 numbers your child will be awarded a special sweatshirt courtesy of the Malta Sunrise Rotary.
Why do it?

  • Because anguage acquisition occurs before children enter school.
  • Because it challenges whole families to read 1000 books with their children before the end of first grade. Increasing the family’s bond.
  • Because it fosters a positive connection between books and family.
  • Because it helps children develop a lifelong bond with reading and books.
