1000 Books Before Kindergarten

One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books each and every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation which is key to school success. Plus, reading together is fun!

Our Library is participating in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge. Does this sound like a lot? If you read just two books each night, you can read up to 730 books in just one year. This program is self-paced, and you may begin at any time. You may use the log sheets you’ll receive at the Library, or visit www.1000BooksBeforeKindergarten.org to download an app to log your books.

After each 100 books read, your child will receive a special sticker. We will also put their name on the display in the children’s room. If you wish, we will take their picture for the website and our Facebook page. Why not begin today? Sign up at the Circulation Desk!
