Books to Go Kits

Books to Go Kits

These kits are part of our Every Child Ready to Read initiative at the library.  The kits are based on a theme designed to support early reading preparation skills such as singing, talking, reading writing and playing.

The kits include materials such as books, prepared activities to support reading preparation skills and more.  Visit the Frankfort, Michigan Road, Mulberry or Rossville Libraries fore more information or to check out these kits!

The Children's Department is located in the
Library's historic Carnegie Wing. 

Read more about Andrew Carnegie below.

Andrew Carnegie was a Scottish-born businessman who lived from 1835-1919. He made his fortune in the Steel Industry. After retiring, he became known as a great philanthropist. (A philanthropist is someone who hopes to make all of society better, often by supporting a charity.)  Because of his generous gifts the first Frankfort Library building was constructed. The Children's Dept. is housed in one of the many Carnegie Libraries, located throughout the English-Speaking world.
