Read & Play is a time for caregivers to bring their children to the library to play and socialize with others their age. We have toys set out in the children’s library to explore. During Read & Play we will listen to stories, sing songs, encourage interaction between child and the caregiver with finger plays, lap bounces, and rhymes! We want reading to be a fun and positive experience for children and it all starts in the laps of parents!! Come to have fun, socialize, check out books, and gain confidence as being your child’s first teacher!

 What is 6 by 6? This program emphasizes the six skills that parents and caregivers can help children develop before they learn to read, at about the age of 6.

The 6 by 6 program was created by the Johnson County Library and adopted by the State Library of Kansas to promote statewide.

6 by 6 is funded by a grant from the Scott Community Foundation along with materials provided by the State Library of Kansas.

What does 6 by 6 do for you?  It provides parents and caregivers with fun ideas, activities and reading material to share with their children.  Thanks to the grant, we are able to provide paperback books to each child who attends our weekly programming.  We were also able to purchase educational items to put together early literacy kits.  These kits touch on the different areas that help little minds build learning skills.
