Family Reading Month

Literacy skills begin to develop at birth. Unfortunately only 33% of parents read bedtime stories daily with their children. Reading aloud to your child is the most important thing you can do to help build skills for future reading success. Join us in February for Family Reading Monthand motivate your children to read every day of the year.

Read the Newspaper


Read today’s Emporia Gazette or an earlier issue back to 2002 with your library card. This new service is updated daily so you have access to the latest news. There is a simple and detailed search that lets you find content 24 hours a day thanks to remote access with your library card number. Great for historians, genealogists, and those of us who might have forgotten what we did yesterday!
