Boyne District Library serves our youngest patrons on the lower level of the library. In the Children's Department, we have programming for children birth through elementary school. We offer weekly storytime sessions for our toddlers and preschoolers. We also have fun family-centered programming ranging from STEAM challenges to movie nights to reading challenges. Don’t forget to stop by after school to see what fun can be had. Boyne District Library also hosts a great summer reading program filled with performers, arts and crafts, and prizes!
In our physical space there is a play area where children can play with toys, put on a puppet show, cook something up in our play kitchen, or build on our LEGO wall. We have AWE learning stations for our littlest learners to fine tune their computer skills alongside their critical thinking skills. There is also a seek-and-find mural by one of our our very own hometown artists.
The program in a nutshell:
Every child in your family can participate, from infant up to Kindergarten.
Does reading 1,000 books seem totally overwhelming? We promise, it's not as hard as you think!
3 books a day for 1 year = 1,095 books
10 books a week for 2 years = 1,040 books
1 book a day for 3 years = 1,095 book
