Internet access is also available  A catalog and schedule of stops is available online at:

Summer Reading Program
Located at the Mapleton City Center
 
Each summer Mapleton sponsors a reading program for children ages 5 to 11.  The topic varies each year and the goal is to encourage reading during the summer months.  This will help children retain and improve their reading skills before school begins again.  There is no charge for the program and the children can earn prizes and books for the amount of reading they accomplish.  There may be anywhere from 5 to 7 sessions held on one morning a week for one hour.  These occur from early June to mid July.  Watch for information given out by the City in the newsletter or for flyers sent home with schoolchildren attending Mapleton schools in May of each year.

 

Mapleton Parent Resource Center
Located in the basement of the Mapleton City Center
 
This is a collection of early learning materials geared to the beginning reader.  Parents are encouraged to work with their children and prepare them to read.  There are many early reading books that are leveled to grade, making it easy for parents to choose materials that match the progress of their child.  There are also learning games, puzzles, flash cards, computer CDs, and parenting books.  We have leveled books for grades K to 8 and also some fun storybooks for family reading.
  

The self check-out system is separate from the Bookmobile check-out.  Only parents may borrow materials for a two-week period and must fill out a one-time registration card.  The system is explained at the Center.  The hours of operation are the same as the Utah/Northern Juab County Bookmobile Library.

 

Mapleton Family Literacy Center
Located in the basement of the Mapleton City Center
 
Tutoring in reading is offered to Mapleton residents through this program.  The program accepts both adults and children and the goal is to increase reading skills to the desired grade level.  The student must be reading below grade level to qualify for this help.  There is a one-time charge of $20.00 (Residents) or $30.00 (Non-Residents) to sign-up, but there is no charge for the tutoring hours. A reading assessment test is given to students to determine grade level at the beginning and they are then assigned to a volunteer tutor.  The tutoring occurs twice a week for an hour each time.  Hours of tutoring may vary according to school and summer schedules and are determined by the tutor and the student.

This program can only operate if volunteers come forward to help another person improve the quality of their lives through increasing reading skills.  There is great satisfaction in helping someone gain skills that will enhance their lives.  Tutors must be at least 14 years of age, be readers themselves, want to help others, and must attend a two- hour tutor training session. Young people would greatly benefit from volunteering at the Center.  When they later apply for college acceptance or scholarships the Center will issue letters of recommendation that can be added to their applications.  Call Judy Whiting at 801-882-4400 or 801-489-4833 to enter the program.

Story Time and Preschool Hour for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Located in the basement of the Mapleton City Center.

Story Time is held year round at 10:30 am at the Library on Tuesday mornings for one hour.  It’s purpose it to prepare children for learning, reading, and to attend school.  Various fun topics are presented and the children listen to stories and do a craft.
