For Children

"Libraries Rock!"  Mazomanie Free Library Summer Program - June 18 - July 28, 2018

Music brings people together. Through books, games, musical experiences and activities, children will interact with music and enjoy a variety of "rockin" fun at the library.

Here's How it Works:  Keep track of your reading. For each hour of reading, a sticker goes on our progress chart. Each sticker represents one dollar that will be donated to the Wisconsin Heights Players to help them continue to bring the magic of music and theatre to our community.  Children will also receive small incentive prizes for every two hours of reading.

Where's the Rock Star?  Every day a rubber rock star duck will be hiding in the library. Find it, tell the librarian where it is and you can put your name in for a weekly prize drawing.

Building Your Child’s Literacy Skills

Parents and teachers know that children who are read to at an early age become confident, capable readers. Reading to your child just twenty minutes each day helps encourage language skills, stimulate curiosity, and prepare for success in school.

Have a child with a specific interest like race cars or horses? Need help finding the right book to interest your young reader? Have a school project deadline coming up? Just ask and we will be happy to help you locate just the right books either on our shelves or available through the South Central Library System.
