The Mount Horeb Public Library now has Osmo!

Kids will love learning all kinds of skills with these interactive gaming and learning systems. Whether it's coding, money skills, or drawing Osmo makes learning fun!

What is Osmo?
Osmo is an interactive gaming system that encourages kids to learn via play through a combination of physical play pieces kids hold in their hands and a digital game program that reacts to what the player does in the real world.

*Ask to check out one of three available Osmo systems at the circulation desk. (Osmo systems are available for in-library use only.)

The 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program encourages families to read at least 1,000 books to their preschooler, birth to age 5 before they enter school.

Families can sign up for the free program any time they visit the library. Each child will receive a reading log to record the books they read and each time a goal of 100 books is reached, kids bring their log to the library to receive a sticker and another reading log.
Children who complete the program get to pick out a book which will include a photo and nameplate of the date they finished.
