Beyond Books Summer Programs
Beyond Books Summer Programs for Children will happen on the patio behind the Keizer Cultural Center at 3:30 pm on Wednesdays this summer. Join us for crafts, science experiments, a performance by Children’s Educational Theater, and more! Check out each event on our events page.
Book Club Kits
The library provides book club kits for anyone to check out. Each book club kit contains 8 to 10 copies of a book as well as discussion questions for use by book clubs. The kits check out just like books, but for 6 weeks instead of 3 weeks.
How can we get a kit? Stop by the library to chooses a kit from the shelves below the DVDs. If you see a kit on the list that is currently checked out in our catalog, you are able to place a reserve on it to request it when it is returned. You may also call the library at 503-390-2370 and we will help you place a reserve or check out a kit.
What if a book is lost? If your group happens to lose a book, we ask that you replace it with another copy of the book, new or second hand, that is clean and readable.
Kids library cards are available to any child, ages zero to 13 years. Youth ages 14 and over may apply for an adult card.
An adult must have a library card in their name before a kids card can be issued. The kids card will be associated with the adult as the responsible person.
Click on the frog to register for a card! Submit a second registration for a kid’s card with a note with your name in the “additional information” section.
The library has two early literacy workstations to promote school readiness. These resources provide a good introduction to the media skills young students will use in school, including how to use a keyboard, how the mouse works, and how the mouse interacts with the screen. The workstations are easy for kids to use, so kids can use them independently without a lot of instruction. Preschoolers and fifth graders alike love the wide variety of educational games available.
