Reading with Ringling Bros.
Have your kids always been begging to go to the circus? Now, by reading books, they can! Drop by the Chatsworth-Murray Library to get more information. A child can receive one free ticket for meeting the requirements, and for each paid adult ticket, up to three kids can go for free. This program is only for children over two.
Books & Audiobooks
The children’s department has books and audiobooks for children of all ages. Fiction, non-fiction, and biographies are available.
Fiction books and audiobooks are shelved by author’s last name, followed by first name. Fiction is broken up into sections based on difficulty, so there may be an E (for easy) or a J (for Juvenile) on the label.
Non-fiction books and audiobooks are shelved according to the Dewey Decimal System with the number first, followed by the last name of the author.
