Kids Biblio Boxes

There's still time to sign up for the Kid's Biblio Boxes for May. HURRY - The May box wil be the last Biblio Box until September! 



Comstock Township Library is now offering "Biblio Boxes" for kids!


Set up a bit like a subscription box, every month we will open spots on our sign-up page* for children in grades K-5. Every Biblio Box will be tailored by our librarians to your child's reading preferences.

Each box will include 2-3 surprise library books, along with candy/snacks, an activity or craft, and other surprises and goodies! Your child gets to keep everything but the library books!

Only those with a valid CTL library card may participate**, and this service is free! This program goes on PAUSE from June-August to allow our staff to focus on Summer Reading Program).

ooks will be checked out to the library card. Parent/guardian cards can be used for children.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Read a book (any book) with your newborn, infant, toddler, or preschool-aged child. The goal is to read 1,000 books before your little one starts kindergarten.

The rewards are lasting…
  1. Reading aloud surrounds children with rich language and builds vocabulary and listening skills.
  2. Reading exposes children to new experiences and helps children understand the world around them and empathize with others.
  3. Reading aloud models the importance of reading and shows children reading is fun! 
  4. Reading with your child brings you closer together and creates memorable bonding moments.
  5. You are your child’s first teacher. We want to encourage you to read, sing, talk, play, and write with your children every day. Starting early—before kindergarten—is key to a child’s success when they begin school. The Comstock Township Library is here to support you and your child as you begin your journey toward reading 1000 Books Before Kindergarten! Stop by the Youth desk to get your first sheet today.
