Richmond Township Residents
Our library has something for everyone-check out the tabs below to see the different ways our patrons use the library!
Parents of small children will like our Preschool Storytime sessions for kids 3-5 years old, and our Lapsit program for children 16-36 months old. These free programs are a great opportunity to connect with other parents in the area, and to help foster an early love of reading and the library. Session dates can be found in the library calendar below.
We also offer an at-home, year round reading challenge for children under 5 called 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. Parents receive a workbook with reading suggestions and sheets to track how many books are read. At each interval of 100 books read, a sticker is earned, and at certain levels, prizes are given. Once finished with 1000 Books, the child receives a certificate of completion, a $5 gift card, and is featured in the Library's monthly newsletter. Visit our Circulation Desk for more information!
You won't want to miss our annual Summer Reading Program, sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Each summer we offer a reading challenge for children in addition to programming and special events, all to keep you children engaged in reading throughout the summer.
If your child is in need of homework help or tutoring, be sure to take advantage of a well kept secret-our patrons have FREE access to Tutor.com, a robust website that offers one on one online tutoring with expert tutors specializing in all subjects in grades Kindergarten-High School. Students can take subject specific practice tests, drop off math problems, submit a paper for review, connect with a tutor, or prepare for the ACT/SAT. Tutors are available from Noon-Midnight daily. A library card and PIN are needed for login; click HERE to access Tutor.com
