Friends of the Redgranite Public Library Fundraiser

The Friends of the Redgranite Public Library are “kicking off” a “new book” fundraising campaign.  Desperately needed shelving units are currently under construction, and the Friends are looking for assistance in filling those shelves with 100 new books!  "Every dollar donated adds up to a new book," says Friends President, Sarah Schimke, "and every new book is another adventure for our patrons!"  Donations can be dropped off at the library, or mailed to Redgranite Public Library, PO Box 291, Redgranite WI 54970. 

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

You are you child's first and most important teacher!  That is why the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a great program for you and your child. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day.  Reading to your child helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid foundation--a key to school and learning success.  Plus, sharing stories together is fun and memorable!
