Emerging Readers (5-12 years old)

The children's department offers a variety of age-appropriate classes, events, and workshops that are fun and educational for young children and their caregivers. Please check the Calendar for the latest information on programs. All programs are funded by The Friends of the Flagler County Public Library.

PAWS to Read
We invite beginning readers (aged 4-8) to the library to practice their new skills by reading to a dog and its handler. One-on-one reading sessions are held in a relaxed setting to build confidence and to make reading fun. All canine participants are certified Ambassador Dogs. This program is available through a partnership with the Flagler Humane Society. Sessions are on a first-come-first-served basis from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Caregivers must sign a permission form to allow children to participate.

Science Matters
Join us once-a-month for STEAM (Science – Technology – Engineering – Art – Math) based programming for children 6 and up. A fun environment to stimulate interest in STEAM activities through hands-on activities and projects. Sign up begins 30 minutes before the program starts at the Children’s Room desk and is limited for the first 12 who sign up. 

Boy’s and Girl’s Book Club
We offer two separate books clubs, respectively for boys and girls in grades 3-7. Members read the same book and meet once a month for discussion, snacks, and activities. Registration is required.  Please contact the Children's Department to register; the book club is limited to 10 members. Book Clubs run through the school year from September through May. Sign-up begins in August.
