|The children’s area was made possible by Mr. and
Mrs. Otto “Jimmy” Borchers, the Pilot Club of
Yoakum, funds from a Loan Star Grant, and a
Tocker Foundation Grant, along with the help of our
librarian, and other city personnel. In this section,
children may relax on the couches and chairs while
enjoying easy picture books, early readers books and
chapter books. The addition of a train table, kitchen,
craft table, building blocks and learning walls
complete this fun and interactive space.
|Every summer, the Library hosts a fun and educational reading program and a series of presentations for children of all ages. This program
generally begins in June and runs through the end of July. The reading program is designed to encourage reading throughout the summer
months and offers incentive prizes to those reading. Prizes are awarded at the end of July to the top readers; the types of prizes depends on
budget availability. The presentation schedule consists of tons of exciting programs sure to catch your attention. Past presentations have
included a magician, story tellers, park ranger, how to save money, live animals, fossils, spiders, and MUCH MORE! Schedules are generally
released a couple of months prior to June and will be published on this website, in the local newspaper, and distributed to area schools.
