Read Across America with Dr. Seuss

Read Across America with Dr. Seuss runs February 16 through March 31. Registration forms are available at the Circulation Desk and each participant will receive a reward chart.

For each four books read, children can select a prize and will receive stickers on their reward chart. For those who complete twelve books, their name will be submitted in the grand prize drawing of a Dr. Seuss basket.

A coloring contest with completed coloring sheets can be turned in at the library for a prize. Please bring coloring sheets to the library by March 24 to be on display until March 31. Overall winner will receive a grand prize and coloring sheets will be returned to you after March 31.

To ensure equal access to our Seuss collection, a checkout limit of 4 books per household is in place for the duration of the program. All books must be checked out from the Alliance Public Library to qualify.

Many thanks to the Alliance Public Library Foundation for our prizes!!

Story Time

Story Time is scheduled to resume March 1st. Following PPHD and CDC guidelines, we ask that all patrons wear face masks when using the library.

Held for children ages 3 to 6 years on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m. and Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. from September through the beginning of May. The themed programs include reading time, craft time and other various activities designed to encourage young children to develop a love of books, reading and libraries. Children should be able to sit independently and focus for 30-45 minutes in order to attend. Please register your child(ren) at the circulation desk prior to participating in story time. Parents are invited to attend with their child the first time, and then will be asked to wait for their child in the library. We do ask that parents remain in the library during story time.
