Children’s Services


All preschoolers are invited to register for “1000 Books Before Kindergarten,” a joint program between Kasson Public Library and Community Education.  This FREE program encourages parents to read 1000 books to children before the start of Kindergarten.  Prizes are offered upon completion of each 100 books read, with GRAND PRIZE recognition given to children upon reaching 1,000.  For more information, please click here.


Kasson Public Library welcomes all children and cares about their safety.  Our policy states that all children under the age of 10 must be accompanied (defined as “within sight”) in the library.  Thank you for providing this measure of care.


Kasson Public Library offers Storytimes for children who love to hear great stories! Our sincere desire is to instill the love of books and the importance of life-long learning. Although children of any age are welcome to attend, our Storytimes are prepared and books are selected with 3-5 year-olds in mind.
