Meet Addison County Readers, Inc. They are a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to promoting early literacy and future school success.

 They are a sponsor of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, a program that sends a book each month to the home of each registered child (birth through five years of age) at no cost to the family. Children of different ages receive different titles; the books are carefully selected and are for the children to keep.

Puppet Theater

Our bright and colorful children's room contains materials for children of all ages, from newborn babies to teens. We have board books, picture books, videos, DVDs, and audio books for younger children. Our collection includes beginning reading books for the newest readers and easier chapter books for those just developing their skills.

Math Literacy Pattern Table

Our junior reading section contains humorous and historical fiction, adventures and mysteries, as well as biographies. We have the Dorothy Canfield Fisher collection, the Newbery winners, and many popular series.

The non-fiction section of the Children's Room contains many informative books on diverse topics, alongside resources to help junior researchers. Computers are also provided in the library for your use.

Our magazines include ASK, Sports Illustrated Kids, Zoobooks, National Geographic Kids, American Girl, and Kids Discover.


Our audio book section includes dozens of stories on tape and CDs. Many families listen to these together, especially on longer car trips.

A special parenting section includes books dealing with such issues as the emotional and physical needs of children, health and nutrition, adoption, divorce, and family activities.

There's something for all! Come in, relax and enjoy, and start your child on a lifelong love of the library and all its magic.
