In an effort to boost early childhood literacy, Douglas County Libraries employs the American Library Association’s “Every Child Ready to Read” approach to storytime. The program is based on current research in early literacy and brain development which indicates that it is never too early to prepare children for success as readers. Storytime schedules and weekly themes vary at our libraries. Current storytime schedules are always online at DouglasCountyLibraries.org - go to the "Locations" tab and click on the branch for more information.
Douglas County Libraries offers a wide variety of educational and fun activities for children, teens and adults throughout the year, as well as several literature events (Author Extravaganza, Colorado Author Series, and Douglas County Writers Conference). We offer youth reading programs in the spring and summer, as well as summer reading programs for teens and adults. Monthly calendars of events and our biannual magazine, Access, are available at each library. Monthly calendars are also available at DouglasCountyLibraries.org - click on the Events calendar icon.
