The Vermilion Public Library would like to promote early literacy through a new program we are calling “Books for Kids”.
We are modeling this program after our well-received Books for Babies program, which is targeted towards 18 month old children. In “Books for Kids”, each kindergarten-aged child going to either St. Jerome’s school or Vermilion Elementary School will receive a colorful tote bag, one book, and a gift certificate for a free juvenile membership to our library.
The free membership is a very important part of the kit, as it is an incentive to become a member of the library. It is our hope that this translates into a lifetime of library use.
