Join now! If you read just one book a night starting before your child is 2, you will have read over 1,000 books by the time your child starts kindergarten! Our program makes it fun, with incentives for every milestone you reach–1 book, 25 books, 100 books, 250 books, 500 books, 750 books and 1,000 Books. The program is intended for children under the age of 5 years.

The One Thousand Books Before Kindergarten initiative is designed to:

  • Promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers.
  • Encourage parent and child bonding through reading.
  • Help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.

Studies show that children who are read to from birth have an easier time learning to read.

You can sign up and log your progress here:

https://mcnpl.beanstack.org/

You can also track your progress with the Beanstack Tracker mobile app which is available for both iOS and Android. The mobile app includes the ability to scan the barcode from the back of the book for easy logging.

Teen Volunteers

The Royersford Free Public Library is happy to accept teen volunteers. Anyone aged 13-17 should come to the circulation desk to pick up a Youth Volunteer Application. Anyone aged 14-17  must complete a PA State Police Criminal History Clearance (PCHC) and a PA Child Abuse History Clearance (CAHC)*. These are free for volunteers. Those aged 18 and older must also complete an FBI Fingerprinting Report.

Volunteers have the opportunity to:

  • Assist with programming
  • Prepare crafts
  • Clean
  • Decorate
  • Shelve books

Attention: Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate everyone. Those seeking volunteer hours for the National Honors Society should consider having one or more backup locations in order to obtain all required hours. Hours are first come, first served, so submit your applications as soon as possible!

 

Adult Volunteers

Unfortunately, the Royersford Free Public Library is not accepting adult volunteer applications at this time.

 

*Please note: Due to the requirement of government clearances, the Royersford Free Public Library cannot accommodate individuals seeking court-mandated community service hours.

By August 15, 2018, we managed to read 1,432,260 minutes, and nearly 900,000 of them were from our elementary age group (4th grade and younger)! Thank you to every single reader, parent, performer, and prize donor who helped us reach our goal of one million minutes! We couldn’t be prouder!

We also want to send a heartfelt thank you to all our generous sponsors who helped make this year’s Summer Reading Program possible!
