1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
The library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun and exciting way to start your child on the path to success! It’s open to all children from newborn to five years, and participation is free.
Children receive a prize and sticker for every 100 books read to them. If your child completes the program, they are encouraged to complete it a second time!
Does it sound hard? If you read just one book at night, you will have read about 365 books in a year; that’s 1095 in just three years.
Learn more about the program on the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten page.
