Together with Books
Story Time for Parent and Child is a special ministry of the library in cooperation with the preschool ministry. It is held in the library at 10:00 a.m. on the second Thursday of each month, September through May, for children ages 3 to 5. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Siblings are always welcome. During story time, a carefully selected picture book is read to the children by the librarian or special guest. Then the children make an age-appropriate craft or participate in a special activity that relates to the story. Parents are encouraged to spend time reading to their children while in the library and may check out books to take home.

Summer Reading Club
Every summer the FBC Library offers a Summer Reading Club for children ages 3 - Grade 6. Readers receive stickers for every book read & prizes are given to all participants at the Awards Party with special recognition given to the top reader in each age division.
Numerous studies show that summer reading programs help children retain reading skills over the summer break. Don't let your children miss the fun!
