Launch into Learning

Calling all Parents!

Do you have a 4-year old child who will be entering Kindergarten in the coming year? Stop by the Library to pick up your “Launch into Learning” backpack full of activities and tools to help prepare your child to be successful in school.

Backpacks are available at all Community Library Network locations, United Way of North Idaho, Mountain States Early Head Start, Lakeland Early Head Start, and pop-up library locations.

Included in your “Launch into Learning” backpack: STEAM Activity booklet, door hanger, activity magnet and dice, free book, coupon for a second free book and a library card application.

Children who are exposed to early literacy practices before they enter school are more likely to become successful readers throughout their years of schooling. Stop by and pick up your “Launch into Learning” backpack today!

The backpacks will be distributed to every 4-year old who comes to a community event or attends a program in their neighborhood via the Library Network’s Pop-Up Library outreach program.

We’ve just started pop-up
libraries. These are programs
at apartment complexes,
in parks, and targeted
community locations, such
as food distribution sites.
