Services to Preschools & Kindergarten Classes
We often present programs at local preschools and they also visit the library for tours and storytime programs.
All kindergarteners in Randolph public schools visit the library on a field trip and are eligible to receive their very own library cards.
Honor a special child on his or her birthday, or celebrate the birth of a newborn, by donating a book to the library in the child’s honor. The cost is $15.00. A bookplate will be placed in the book noting the child’s special occasion and a card will be sent to the child announcing your gift. If the child is a Randolph resident, he or she (or the parent) will be the first to borrow the book.
