Growing Kewaunee Readers

GDuring National Library Week, April 7-13, the Kewaunee Public Library will introduce Growing Kewaunee Readers: a new initiative that features leveled reading challenges from birth to graduation to encourage reading in the community.

Starting at a child’s birth, parents will read 100 books to the child before age two. Then their goals will be to complete 1,000 books before kindergarten, 100 books before sixth grade and 100 more before graduation. At the end of each challenge, participants will receive a ribbon to celebrate their accomplishment. Children and teens may start this challenge at any age.

The library will host a kickoff open house April 8-13. Kewaunee community members may visit the library at any time starting April 8 to receive their introductory book tote and first free book.

Librarians will be available to answer questions about the initiative; you may also learn more at or by calling 920.388.5015.
