For Kids

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Why 1000 Books before Kindergarten?

  • Parents who read with their children daily are creating warm, loving, happy memories that their children will remember forever!
  • Children whose parents read aloud to them regularly have longer attention spans than children from non-reading households.
  • Children who are read to often have larger vocabularies and an increased capacity for learning.

Storytime Program

Storytime is a program geared for 3 year olds to attend with an adult caregiver. There are three 8 week sessions during the school year.  Beginning in September and ending in May.  You may register your child by calling the library at 715-274-8331 or by emailing [email protected]. Updates are also available on the Legion Memorial Library Facebook page.


Mellen Public School

The Library supports Mellen Public School, home of the Mellen Granite Diggers.  A number of grade school students visit the public library with their teacher once a month during the school year.  While at the library children listen to a story, sometimes a joke or two and maybe even join in saying a tongue twister.  A quick craft project is made with time left for browsing the shelves for a book to take home until their next visit.
