West Fargo Public Library helps ensure every child at local daycares is ready to read and succeed in school through our daycare book delivery program and daycare storytimes! We are also always looking for daycares that can help spread the word and encourage parents to sign up their kids for our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Interested in becoming a Ready to Read daycare or getting more information to share with your favorite daycare provider? Contact our Children's Services Librarian today!
Daycare Book Deliveries
Our daycare book delivery service promotes access to books and literacy development by bringing library books directly to your daycare or pre-school.
This service is available to licensed daycares and pre-schools located in West Fargo and the West Fargo school district. Library staff select 20 children's books and deliver them to the provider in a tote bag.
Only local providers holding an institutional library card may request a daycare book delivery. To obtain an institutional library card, an authorized officer of the institution must accept responsibility for the card by listing themselves as an Institutional Contact on our online card application form.
Providers may request one delivery per month.
Books and totes are delivered and picked up on the first Monday of the month.
All items must be ready for pickup in good condition. Borrowers are responsible for the books and tote bag, including all costs associated with damage or loss.
The West Fargo Public Library visits a number of local daycares to provide storytimes. Daycare storytimes reinforce kids' vocabulary, social skills, language development and creativity through reading, singing, talking, writing and playing. Through storytime, practicing these skills is fun and positive, which encourages kids to read and learn independently as they grow up.
