School-aged children can find books labeled with AR points and reading levels.
Our collection is always growing, and we can request items for you from one of the 500 libraries in the Illinois Heartland Library System!
All young readers are encouraged to participate in our summer reading program, which starts in early June. Follow WPLM on Facebook to learn about the many special events hosted for youth and families throughout the year.

Students are always welcome to use our study room, available computers, and free wi-fi to do homework, work on group projects, or just have a quiet place to read.
Dig into a Series
Reluctant readers sometimes feel the burden of "what to read next".
You can ease that problem by finding a series a young reader enjoys.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarden
Statistics show that children who have "read" 1,000 books before starting Kindergarten have a better vocabulary, are more attentive and start reading on their own earlier. For every 100 books read, the child gets their own book to add to their home library. Call 566-3520 and we can mail you a tracking sheet, or download the app for Apple or Android devices at: https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/resources.
