All Children Excel @ MCPL! We've got resources, tools & programs to help your child soar!

We offer many resources to start children on the road to lifelong learning as they grow as individuals and expand their knowledge of the world around them. One of our important missions is to help All Children Excel. To accomplish this MCPL offers:

Storytimes for babies through preschool that help children and parents develop the important pre-reading skills every child must have before learning to read.

Singing to children is a great way to introduce them to rhythm and rhyme as well as increase their vocabulary. It increases your child’s awareness of the sounds in words and this helps prepare your child to sound out words when they read. Looking for some songs to sing? MCPL offers both streaming and downloadable children's music.

Playing is another way children learn and discovery the world around them. Make a reservation for your children (newborns - age 8) to encourage learning through play at one of our Discovery Rooms.

Looking for programs for your elementary school age child? MCPL has many great programs for grades K-5 to help them learn and grow.

Interested in your child learning another language? Try Muzzy Online and Mango Languages.

Want to engage your children with STEM? MCPL has Go! Kits for ages 3 - 6 (Little Explorer) and for grades 3 - 6 (Young Voyager) that are designed to encourage the parents and children to actively explore the world around them. Each kit contains several books, science tools, and a mini iPad with preloaded apps. Looking for a way for your child to engage in STEM activities with other children? Come to one of our many STEM programs for children at MCPL branches.

Looking to help teach your child to read or want to increase their reading skills? Try our e-books and audiobooks for children.  Looking for a fun way for your child to practice their reading skills and gain confidence reading aloud? Come to one of our Read to a Dog programs. Our dogs are great listeners!

Does your child need help Homework Help? Not only does MCPL have in person Homework Help events, they also provide many great online resources to help with projects and papers.

Many branches also have Early Literacy Billingual and After School Edge Stations which are special computers preloaded with child tested software that makes learning science, math, geography and reading fun for young children. These programs are designed to inspire children to become life-long learners through education and technology.

Enjoy learning with your child at any age—be our partner in helping All Children Excel!
