1,000 Books Read
The Mohawk Community Library is excited to start
the new 1,000 Books Program for children ages birth
to kindergarten. The child's parent is encouraged to
read 1,000 books to them before they enter
kindergarten. This program is meant to cover the
first five years of life. Parents can enter their
child/children at any age before kindergarten. There
is no prize for finishing quickly. Parents are
encouraged to enjoy the books from the library with
their child/children. The purpose of the program is to
encourage reading to very young children. After
every 100 books the child is given a incentive for that
level. After 1,000 books are finished the child receives
a 1,000 Books T-shirt and a certificate. We hope that
the parent and child will enjoy reading together and
it will become a regular part of their family life.
The book drop at the front of the library is for
BOOKS ONLY. If patrons put DVD's, BLU-RAYS,
Books on CD, or CD's in the book drop there is a
$5.00 fine for each item. If the item is damaged while
in the book drop then the patron that placed it in the
drop will have to replace the item.
The Ohio Attorney Generals' office has developed
the Senior Fraud Education Resources (SAFE)
program to help better protect Ohio families. This
program educates seniors, caregivers, social
workers, and families about frauds and scams that
target seniors. We have the resources here at the
library for our patrons. So if you want to look it
over just come in to MCL and ask a librarian for
The Graphic Challenge is back. Starting on
Sept 15th through Nov 8th 3rd through 12th
graders can check out a great graphic novel
and get a review card to fill out. For every
review you bring back to the library you will
receive a fun size candy bar and your name is
then entered into our weekly drawing. One
student is drawn each Friday at the end of
business hours for a $5.00 gift card.
