Shreve Memorial Library

As children begin to head back to school, Shreve Memorial Library is encouraging young readers to continue reading with reading programs such as the new Beanstack Virtual Field Trips program and 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.

Starting September 1, children ages 6 to 10 are invited to take virtual field trips in a new Beanstack reading challenge. The Virtual Field Trips program encourages children to read books at home and go on virtual field trips to fantastic locations such as zoos, museums, outer space, national landmarks, aquariums, and more.
