Children's Activities

Click through the menus below to find more information about our different types of regularly-occurring children’s programs. For specific dates and special events, please check the calendar above.


The Harlingen Public Library is now using Beanstack to run virtual reading challenges. Beanstack is an online app or website that you can use to track your child’s reading and earn prizes in one of our many reading programs for children of all ages. Children can participate in more than one challenge at a time. In this scenario, the reading they do counts towards both programs.

Log in or sign up here: harlingenlibrary.beanstack.org

Download the Beanstack App for more features! In-app features include barcode scanning and a reading timer. Available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store

                                                                                                                                                                          

Some of our current and upcoming reading challenges include:

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (Ages 0-5)

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program designed to encourage early childhood literacy in the years before children enter school. For this challenge, log all the books you read to your little one and see if you can read 1,000 of them together by the time they get to Kindergarten. Does your kid love a particular book? You can log that book each time you read it together!

PARTICIPANTS EARN A PRIZE FOR EVERY 200 BOOKS THEY READ!

If you have any questions about registering, please contact us at (956) 216-5819 or email youth@harlingenlibrary.com

                                                                                                                                                                          

#BooksLikeUs (All Ages)

We’re joining other libraries across the country in this challenge! Libraries who read the most have the chance to win prizes for their community from Simon & Schuster, like books for the library or virtual author visits.

Log all the reading you do this month and encourage your friends to log their reading too. You’ll earn some little prizes along the way too.

We host story time for families to enjoy together twice a week. On Tuesday mornings, you can catch story time at 10:30 am, and on Wednesday evenings, you can catch PJ story time at 7:00 pm.

Please note: Until further notice, all story times will be held virtually, through our Facebook page.

If you have any questions, please contact us at (956) 216-5819 or email youth@harlingenlibrary.com.
