What's happening at the Brown County Library

The Brown County Library's Dream BIG Early Literacy Challenge encouraged children ages 0-5 and their adults to participate in suggested talking, singing, reading, writing and playing activities designed to develop the child's language and other pre-reading skills. Prizes were awarded in a random drawing to participants in two categories: 0-2 and 3-5. Pictured is Addy Achten, 4, of Green Bay, who regularly visits the Bookmobile with her grandmother, Ellie Thomas. Addy's prize was a copy of 'Chicka Chicka Boom Boom' and a set of magnetic alphabet letters.
