"Money as You Grow" Book Club


Lee County Library is participating in the Money as You Grow program sponsored by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  The Money as You Grow program is a family financial education program that uses children's books to help families learn key money concepts through reading, play, and quiet one-on-one talks.

Each book in this collection has a reading guide you can take home and keep!  If you are among the first to visit this collection you can get a folder and stickers, too!

The books are a permanent part of our collection and are easy to identify with a green "M" sticker across the top of the spine of the book.  Visit us today to learn more about the program!

Book Review



The Wonderful Things You Will Be by Emily Winfield Martin. Random House, 36 pages. $17.99, 2015

The author has created a cute inspiring book  for youngsters. All parents with a new child want the best and most wonderful things for their child as this children’s book demonstrates. The word choices make the book easily accessible to preschoolers. Children are encouraged to be nice, smart, and adventurous, to take care of the small, and to help things grow The author’s oil paintings beautifully illustrate the book in an old Alice, Jerry, and Jip style reminiscent of the 1950’s.  Check out this book for a fun bedtime story.

New for the 2017-2018 School Year!  Students in Lee County School District will receive will bring home a letter describing a new program being offered at our Library.  Beginning October 1, 2017, all Lee County students will be able to use their Student ID number to access and borrow public library books and resources. We are calling this initiative StudentAccess.

Students will automatically be signed up to access Library resources with their Student ID. This does not take the place of their current or future library card. It does however ensure every student has access to materials they may need to be successful.
