For Kids 

Summer reading is all about heros this year

Join us each Wednesday to celebrate heros.

July 8 - Aminal heros
July 15 - Community heros
July 22 - Environmental heros
July 29 - Heros of the future

Children are encouraged to come to the library for activities but don't need to attend library events in order to be eligible for prize drawings.  Participants can turn in a list of at least 10 books they've read over the summer and get one entry for every 10 books.  50 books = 5 entries.  The more books, the better the chance of winning prizes!


Preschool story time - Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m., from September through May join Sweet Pea, the furry green crocodile for a fun time of songs, stories and crafts for the little ones.

When she's not at story time, Sweet Pea can be found at various places in the Kamiah library.
