UPL Programs for youth


Join Miss Katy for stories, songs and fun. There are sessions for little ones (ages 0-2) on Tuesdays, and preschool age children (3-5) on Wednesday. Sessions run five weeks. Visit our calendar for specific dates, or call the library for more information or to register. 

Paws for Reading

Beginning readers can practice their reading with Aizlyn, licensed therapy dog, right at the library. See the calendar for specific dates. No registration is necessary.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Can you read 1,000 books before kindergarten? Build early literacy skills with your children, before they even start school. 

Summer Reading

Participating in Summer Reading keeps your skills sharp and is fun too! Read every week to win prizes, and visit the library for fun events. Check in at the library before school gets out each year to learn more about how to participate.
