Infants, Toddlers, and Pre-K Programs - Spring
The Spring Green Community Library is an excellent place for younger children to socialize with other kids their age, and have fun while doing so! Our programs focus mostly on crafts and literacy. We also have a fantastic selection of children's books and dvd's, so there's definitely something for your child to enjoy! Come cozy up in warm, welcoming kids' area and read a book!
‣ Spring Break Family Movie: Disney's Moana

Moana is rated PG. Parents must be present for all children 6 and younger. See you there!
‣ Storytimes @ The Spring Green Community Library
We offer storytimes in the Fall, Spring, and Summer! Storytimes typically consist of one or two books, some easy-to-learn songs, and a craft/activity. Parents are required to stay with their children for storytimes. Additionally, though we champion curiosity and expressiveness in children, we do ask that parents and guardians do their best to keep their child relatively quiet and focused in order to avoid distracting other children, and to ensure everyone's safety! We thank you so much for your cooperation, and we look forward to seeing you at the library!
Note: we need at least four families to consistently attend any individual storytime. In the case of continued low attendance, the schedule is subject to change and a storytime slot may be removed. Be sure to pay attention to our website or facebook page for any updates! You can also come into the library and sign up to be on our age 0-6 e-mail lists!
We will occasionally be joined by some wonderful guests from the Meadows Assisted Living & Memory Care in Spring Green to read stories to children! We're thrilled to have a developing partnership with such a fantastic group of individuals!

‣ 1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Note: We are currently in the process of restructuring our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program in order to make things as easy as possible for both children and parents! In fact, we've been testing a fantastic and easy to use app! We are expecting to roll out our new and improved version some time this spring, so be sure to stay tuned! Until then, feel free to call Chris or with any questions!
The Spring Green Community Library is proud to offer the "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" early literacy program to families in the community! This independent program encourages parents to read aloud to their young children. While reading together, your child gains phonetic understanding that letters make sounds, sounds make words, and words make stories: all of which will help your child acquire important pre-reading skills. Designed for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, the program is to be completed before your child enters Kindergarten. Come into the library today to register and receive your program materials. Simply read to your child as much as possible, and track your progress. Fun rewards will be given out periodically and at the completion of the program. By reading just three stories a day, you and your child will have read over 1000 books in a year!
