The Library supports school readiness and literacy through play!
Invite the Library to set up a booth at your Kindergarten orientation event. We will share resources for how the Library can support a student’s school journey.
We are able to engage families through stories, songs, art making, and games, if you request it. Kindergarten students receive limited-edition Library cards. This program is not suitable for preschool classes.
Program length varies
The 2019 Library Goes to Kindergarten Artist for 2018
Every year a local artist illustrates a Calgary Public Library card just for kids entering Kindergarten. Library staff at your Kindergarten orientation night will sign kids up on the spot and hand out the cards.
As part of her residency, Artist in Residence Nicole Wolf will create the 2019 design. Meet Nicole on the Artist in Residence page, and stay tuned for the limited edition Kindergarten Library cards in early 2019.
