1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program at CCPL Helps Build Early Literacy Skills

Great article in the Republican Nonpareil about our NEW 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program and about our Summer Reading Program!

The 1,000 Books program helps to encourage parents to read to their child/children which helps with their social, emotional, and cognitive development. It’s easier for children to learn words and language skills before they turn six and those children that are read to have larger vocabularies which will help them be successful in school.

There are over 70 local kids participating in our #1000BooksBeforeKindergarten program!

Pictured is Raymond Smith (son of Bobby & Michaila Smith). He was the first one to read 1,000 books!
