Family and Literacy

Looking for a fun, free activity that you and your family
can enjoy together...look in a BOOK!

Spending quality time reading as a family helps
to bring you together to learn, explore and grow!

At McKinley Memorial Library, we want to help you and your family snuggle up together
and share the love of reading!

That's why we offer programs like Cozy With Pozy Family Storytime
every Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the Auditorium
during the months of September-April.

The following websites provide some fantastic ideas about
how you can make reading a part of your family fun time!
