Preschool programs and resources
Raise Readers is a 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Early Literacy Initiative. The program is meant to encourage parents and caregivers to read to their children at an early age. Reading aloud to your children is a fun activity, and it helps your child learn.
Reading aloud encourages social, emotional, and cognitive development and can set your child up for school success.
Parents or caregivers of children birth to five are encouraged to sign up today! You can sign your child up by contacting the library at 405-222-6075.
Participants will receive a reading log for every one hundred books to track their progress. When sheets are turned in, you will receive fun bookmarks and stickers for every 100 books. Participants who complete the program will receive a free book that is theirs to keep!
The Chickasha Public Library is not hosting any in-person programs at this time. However, we are still striving to meet the needs of even our smallest patrons.
We have several Preschool storytime options. Parents and caregivers can join the library's closed Facebook group for live or prerecorded storytimes, and you can register for our Zoom storytimes beginning in January. If virtual isn't for you, that's ok. We also have curbside take and make crafts and Preschool Storytime kits available for check out.
Join the Chickasha Public Library's Virtual Children's Space, a private Facebook group here.
Preschool storytime kits available at the library. We currently have two kits available each one contains books and magazines geared towards ages five and younger, an activity sheet, and felt pieces and felt board on a theme. These can be checked out curbside by calling the library at 405-222-6075.
Do you want a storytime kit on a certain theme or a bundle of books? You can fill out a short form, and a librarian will pull books for you.
