Midlothian Public Library is dedicated to assisting parents and teachers as they prepare their youngsters for reading and educational success.

Parents:

Check out our “Topics to Talk About” section. Topics include potty training, visiting the doctor, and the first day of school.

The Library supports Every Child Ready to Read, an approach to teaching early literacy based around the practices of talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. http://www.everychildreadytoread.org/

Remember to think of the library when your Scout troops need a field trip!

Teachers:

 Teachers can find magazines, books, educational DVDs, and other materials to supplement classroom lessons. Feel free to call the Help Desk and a youth services staff member will be glad to compile materials for you to check out.

Youth Services staff loves to visit local daycares, preschools, and lower-elementary classrooms. Call to schedule a storytime, a lesson on how to research topics, or anything else that might assist your students.

 Teachers can also schedule tours, classroom visits, and storytimes at the library.
