By reading with your young child, you are giving your child a boost towards a successful education. Many studies have demonstrated that there is a positive correlation between access to books in the home and early literacy

Each Sidney child that is registered-will receive five books in the mail during the 2010-2011 school year. For more information call the Sidney Library at 563-1200.
