Programs & Events for Children

Holiday Lights Scavenger Hunt

Every Thursday in December, Y99.3 plays holiday music from 5-7 PM for a "Holiday Joy Ride"! We've teamed up with KWAY to offer a Holiday Light Scavenger Hunt that families can use as they drive around, listening to the sounds of the season and trying to find as many types of light displays as they can. Let's have some fun this holiday season! Download the scavenger hunt sheet here.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This ongoing early literacy initiative (called 1KB4K for short) began in February 2016 and encourages parents to read aloud at least 1,000 books with their children before they enter school.  Families log their reading either through the app and website Beanstack or on paper (picked up at the library). At the milestones of completing 100 books, children receive a library bag, and at completion of 500 books, they receive a finger puppet. The culminating prize is a book and certificate the child can keep.
