The library is the perfect spot to complete the Read to ME Challenge! The Read to ME Challenge was created by the Maine Department of Education to support early literacy and strengthen a child’s love for reading. The challenge runs through February and to complete it an adult needs to read to/and or with children for at least 15 minutes. The books below are perfect read aloud books!
