In October of 2016, Public Act 306 was signed into law.  In short, all 3rd Grade students not scoring proficint on the 3rd grade English Languages Arts state assessment will be retained.  This means any child in kindergarten this year is impacted by this new law. 

As a library card holder you have access to many resources to help prepare your child for Kindergarten and beyond.  Starting as infants we offer storytimes through age 5.  These programs help introduce your child develop language by learning how sounds build words.  They also learn social skills that help build confidence.  Kids develop a love of reading when books are a part of their childhood.  Build lifelong readers and you build livelong learners.

Another great sources is MeL Kids at kids.mel.org.  The Michigan eLibrary offers support for school projects through access to databases, encyclopedias and more.  A favorite resourc is Scholastic Bookflix for Pre-K through 3 this is an interactive experience that allows beginning readers to explore fiction and non-fiction titles designed to increase understanding and fluency. 

Check out Mel.org and see what they have for the whole family.

We've recently created a new section in our Easy Reader collection.  We now have a small, but growing, number of nonfiction easy readers.  These are located at the end of the fiction easy readers.  Like the other easy readers, they have red (easy), black (intermediate), and white (advanced) dots on their spines to guide you in matching books with reading abilities. Soon, we will be moving easy-to-read books that we currently have in our regular youth nonfiction collection over to this new section.  In the meantime, please let us know if you don't see what you're looking for in the new collection and we will see if we have it elsewhere in the youth department.  Below are some samples of the new titles we've recently added:

Fall is right around the corner!  As you start getting ready for school and all of the fall extracurricular activities, we hope you take time to visit the library. 

Fall storytimes for children from birth through 5 1/2 years begin the week of September 13th.  We've added a Family Storytime for 2 1/2 - 5 1/2 year olds to Tuesday morning and moved Preschool Storytime for 3-5 year olds to Wednesday morning.  The full lineup of storytimes and other fall programs can be found on our flyer.

Begin the new school year with a new library card for your kids.  September is National Library Card Sign-up Month.  Milford residents in Kindergarten - 6th grade who get their VERY FIRST library card in September can pick out a free book.

If you're looking for books about the first day of school, autumn, pumpkins, apples, Halloween, football or anything else that the season has to offer, be sure to check out our collections.  In fact, we sometimes make it really easy for you by putting up special displays highlighting different parts of our collection.
