1,000 Books Before Kindergarten: My first reading log
The North Logan City Library invites you and your child to participate in this fun, free program! Any child from birth through age 5 can sign up. You do NOT need a library card to participate. (You are welcome to sign-up for a library card but this program doesn't guarantee a library card.) When you receive your reading log, keep track of how many books your child hears from that point on. It can be any book, as many times as they want (each time counts!), read by anyone. This includes other family members, teachers, or librarians. Write down the titles in this log, or simply make a check mark on the line for each book read. Getting up to 1,000 books doesn't take as long as you might think! If you read three books per day, you will be done in less than one year. If you read one book per day, it will take under three years. The pace is entirely up to you and your child, but finish before your child starts kindergarten to claim the final prizes. If you loose your book it is a $1.00 replacement fee. There is a one time sign-up registration. We had a printing delay so program sign-ups have been moved to October 10th. You can sign-up anytime after that date.

Hawkes' Pancake Mix
We have the famous Hawkes' Pancake Mix for sale at the library while supplies last. They are $6 per bag. We accept cash, venmo or check. In 1995, armed with a deep love of service, Boy Scout experience, and a great pancake recipe, Joe Hawkes and his family began running the North Logan annual Pioneer Day Community Breakfast. Later while serving on the Friends of the North Logan Library board, Joe realized the breakfast was a perfect fundraiser for the library and admission was changed to donation only. Each year the community looks forward to greeting friends while enjoying Joe's pancakes and supporting the library. Now his legacy continues all year in Hawkes' Hotcake Mix with proceeds going to the library. Thank you for building our stacks by building yours!
