Libraries throughout the Rock County offer fun pre-literacy and skill-building programs such as Storytime, ABC Playgroup, Movers and Makers, and more for kids and families.

These programs are free, and no library card is required to participate – though you can get a free library card with an ID and proof of address (like a postmarked bill).
