Give your child a good start in kindergarten. When you register your 5-year-old by June 1, you have time to get to know your school and your teacher, and he or she has time to prepare the classroom for your child. To identify your school or get help with other needs, call 211 or email children@211info.org.

Patrons are scooping up these bookmarks, available in honor of #NationalLibraryWeek. One patron said, “I DO love library workers — they make the world go round!" That made us feel all warm and fuzzy. Why do you love the library workers in your neighborhood?

To ensure that children are surrounded by great books, we loan buckets of picture books to childcare and education centers. Every two months, we deliver a fresh set of 25-50 books. One daycare shared this sweet thank you.
