1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
In August 2014, the Mary L. Cook Public Library launched a new literacy program, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. We have 30 readers who have completed the goal of 1000 books. If you read one book a day to your child, she/he will reach 1000 books in under three years. Though the goal of this program is to improve literacy skills, even more, it’s about time spent together reading. Sign your child up today.

It allows you to store your barcode as well as those of your family members in the app. Use these stored barcodes in the same way that you use your actual card for checking out at the library. Go to your Google store or Apple store to download the MLC library app today. Access the catalog and your account easily from the app. Put items on hold right from the app. Access our mobile website from the app where you can check for upcoming events, read Flipster e-magazines, and see what’s new at the library.
