From our Children's Librarian:
Summer went by fast and fun! Thank you to all who participated in Summer Reading!! Hope it was fun and Can’t wait until next year!
Coming up we have the Family Place workshops! Those will be beginning Sept. 13th –Oct. 11th, each Tuesday evening at 6pm. Now these programs are exclusively for ages 0-5 and their parents/caregivers! It’s a time for them to play with their child and learning through that play. It emphasizes that parents are the first teachers and children learn best through play. Each week a various community professional will be there to casually visit with the parents! Registration is required and is due by Sept. 5th so contact me or come by the library to register!
Story time will start up again Thursday Sept 8th, at 10 am and will continue for every Thursday after.
For September children’s program we will have a Crazy Crafting day on Saturday, Sept. 24th at 3pm.
Looking forward to seeing you all this fall!!

From the Director:
Parents and Guardians of preschoolers, Dodge City Public Library is once again offering their Parent Child Workshop as part of being a Family Place Library. The Parent/Child Workshop is a five week program that involves preschoolers ages 0-5 and their parents or caregivers; features local professionals who serve as resources for parents; emphasizes the role of parents as the first teachers of their children; facilitates early intervention; and teaches strategies for healthy child development and early literacy. The preschoolers and their parents/caregivers attend the workshops together.
These fall workshops will be held on Tuesdays beginning September 13 at 6pm and continues through October 11. Registration is required. For information or to register contact Rozanna in the Youth Department at Dodge City Public Library. If your child is under age five stop by Dodge City Public Library to inquire about the program, visit the space designed for young children, check out some new resources for parents, and register for the workshops.
Family Place Libraries™ is a network of children’s librarians nationwide who believe that literacy begins at birth, and that libraries can help build healthy communities by nourishing healthy families. Family Place Libraries redesign the library environment to be welcoming and appropriate for children beginning at birth; connect parents with the resources, programs and services offered at the library and other family service agencies; and reach out to non-traditional library users. This creates the network families need to nurture their children’s development during the critical first years of life and helps ensure all children enter school ready and able to learn.
This program has been made possible by Family Place Libraries, Dodge City Interagency Coordinating Council along with a Kellogg Grant, and Dodge City Public Library. For more information contact Rozanna at the library at 225-0248 or by stopping by the library located at 1001 North 2nd Avenue in Dodge City. ... See MoreSee Less
