1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Calling all families of preschoolers from birth to 5 years! The library has partnered with Poquoson Kiwanis Club to help you prepare your youngster to enter kindergarten ready to read. Reading 1,000 books to your preschooler may sound daunting at first, but you are probably already doing it and just don’t realize it. You can set your own pace; it can be a multi-year project. Come into the library to register and get started.
Picturing the Past
Teaming up with the Poquoson Museum and the Poquoson Historical Commission, the library is creating a digital archive of historic photos for the public to enjoy. If you have old photographs, negatives, or slides and would consider loaning them to the library for scanning, please call the library at 757-868-3060. To see what we have so far, click HERE
