We have 2 more “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” readers.”. Congratulations goes to Kally Becker daughter of Doug and Sheila Becker and Madelynn Heimes, daughter of Bob and Michelle Heimes who completed the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten last week at the library. They each received a reading certificate, medal and a book for their reading accomplishment! We have had a total of 14 kids completed this program since in started in April 2103!
This program was developed to instill the love of reading, get children ready for school, and to encourage more parent/child library visits. Books are logged and prizes are awarded along the way. One of the best ways to encourage pre-reading skills is to spend time sharing books each and every day! Reading provides a solid foundation, a key to school and learning success. When you, as a parent read to your child, you help him or her develop the skills they will need to learn to read by themselves.
