The children's programs of the Douglas County Public Libraries are free and full of fun! We offer an open invitation to Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Home Schoolers, and Children of all ages to come participate.
We include music, finger plays, and rhymes with our stories. We also incorporate a craft for each child to take home.

Preschool Storytime is an opportunity for young children to be introduced to literacy through books, storytelling, puppets, flannel board stories, and LOTS of interaction with the storyteller and other preschoolers
.
Family Storytime is geared for families with children pre-k through 5th. Held on evenings and weekends, family storytime is perfect for families to come together and for working parents that cannot make it to our regular morning programs.

Afterschool Kids Zone is a monthly afterschool program offered at the Douglas County Branch for students aged 6-12 and their parents. No preschoolers please. Activities include arts & crafts, stories, and other hands-on projects.

L@L:Learning at the Library is an afterschool program offered at the Lithia Springs Branch and includes arts & crafts, poetry, and hands-on projects geared toward students ages 6 and up.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten encourages families to read at least 1,000 books to their children before they enter school. Families can sign up as of February 2015 at the Dog River, Douglasville, and Lithia Springs Library branches. Each parent will receive a log for their first fifty books to fill out as well as a parent instruction sheet that details the program in full. Each time a log is complete, bring it back to the library for a completion sticker and to receive your next log. At each 250 book milestones, children and parents will receive a special prize for their devotion to the program. A child’s personal books, books checked out from the library, storytimes attended, books read in daycare, and repeats of the same book are all included in the count to 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.
