Bookstart Book Crawl is a fantastic library joining incentive for children age 0 – 3 years. Children receive a collection card and then collect stickers on each visit to the library. When they have collected 5 stickers they are given a certificate. There are ten attractive certificates to collect. A free book is given out with the first certificate while stocks last. Just ask at your local library for details.
