West Linn: Just for Kids

  • Library | read more...

    1000 Books Before Kindergarten is the library’s reading program for families and caregivers with children who have not yet entered kindergarten. This program encourages parents and caregivers to create a regular routine of sharing books with young children. Research has shown children who are read to at an early age are more successful in school, and that the ability to learn language skills is greatest before the age of six.

    Join us for LEGO Club! Kids can come to the library and build houses, castles, towers, or whatever they like. Each month will have a theme and our expert, Blair Archer, is on hand to provide tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your build. After each session we'll share the LEGO creations online for everyone to see as well as a few in the library display case.

    LEGO bricks will be provided so please do not bring your own. The library does accept donations!

    Suitable for ages 4-12.

    Tales to Tails will resume on September 13!

    Kids sign up for 20-minute sessions to read to a dog downstairs at the library. Each child chooses a book and how much reading and petting to do. Reading to the dogs increases enthusiasm for reading, develops reading skills, teaches children how to interact with pets and promotes confidence.

    Our dog handlers encourage interaction with their dogs and will offer help if needed. All dog and handler teams are certified therapy trained.

    Many of the high quality youth and sports programs in the West Linn area are handled by outside organizations not affiliated with the Parks and Recreation Department. The information in this area is updated as initial or new contact information is provided by the organizations.

    We make efforts to solicit appropriate contact information, but it is not always possible. If you know of other local youth sports organizations please pass them along to us.
