1,000 Books Read Before Kindergarten!!!
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.

BOOK DROP
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.
Senior Advocate Education Resources
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 one.
