Book Club

The patrons of Riley City Library have an adult book club that meets once a month on the third Monday of the month. A different book is read each month and then a book discussion is held on the meeting date. Each participant is able to check out a copy of the book through the Riley City Library. Please stop by and speak to Pat at the Library or call 785-485-2978.

If you want to stop by at a book club meeting and check it out that is fine also.

Third Monday night at 7pm at the Library.

1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN

Sign your child, age birth to Kindergarten, to the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading program at the Riley City Library.  Each child will receive their own patron card and a lanyard to carry it on.  They will also receive prizes when they reach each 100 books read to them level.  This is a national program that promotes reading to children so they are better prepared for kindergarten.  It encourages their love of books and reading.  It will help with their verbal and listening skills.  Please stop by anytime we are open and fill out a patron information sheet.
