The op­por­tu­nity to choose books for them­selves is a great way to help en­cour­age chil­dren’s in­ter­est in read­ing, and we’ve got a new tool to help! Visit our Early Reader sec­tion (next to the DVDs in the Chil­dren’s Cor­ner), and you’ll find th­ese books are now colour coded. Par­ents and chil­dren can use our posted guide to choose the right read­ing level (Start­ing to Read, Read­ing Alone, Ready for Early Chap­ter Books, and Strong Reader), then browse that sec­tion to find books that are just right – a bit of a chal­lenge, but not so hard young read­ers will get dis­cour­aged.

Don’t skip the other sec­tions, though – even adults en­joy an easy book some­times, and a chal­leng­ing book a child re­ally wants to read can be a great mo­ti­va­tor to build his or her read­ing skills!

For more in­for­ma­tion on pro­grams, events and ser­vices at the li­brary, visit our web­site at www.drumheller­li­brary. ca, or call us at 403-823-1371. We’re also on Face­book, Twit­ter, and Pin­ter­est!
