Treasure Box Treasure Chest

Our treasure chest is filled to the brim with toys for our younger readers. This special reading incentive is for children kindergarten age and younger. When children are caught reading a book to an adult in the library or when an adult helps a child read a beginning book while in the library, the child is invited to pick a surprise from the treasure box.
