The Caribou Public Library is a place where parents and caregivers bring their children to read and learn together. We believe that early literacy services are a key foundation for long term economic success. We offer the following early children’s literacy development programs:
Mother Goose Story Time (newborn - 2 years)
Tuesday, 10:30-11:00 a.m.
Stories, nursery rhymes, songs, and fingerplay. This program is designed to help children build listening and participation and assist in the development of large and fine motor skills and to engage and sustain interest. Weekly program.
Preschool Program (2-5 years)
Wednesday, 10:30-11:00 a.m.
Stories are read, conversation engagement, & art activities to help children development early social & literacy skills. Weekly program.
Story Time for All Ages

A new collaborative reading program launched early this year. Loring Job Corp students visit the library once a week and read to children. The program offers students a positive experience reading to children, talking about books. Students involve children in the story by asking questions and encouraging reading.

The librarian selects a number of books in which students vote to determine what they will read. The list contains Newbury award winners or core books. Fiction and nonfiction books are read. Students discuss what they like about a story or dislike. This builds comprehension skills and an enthusiasm for stories in a variety of topics.
