Today was a great day! Merek and Landry Heimes, son and daughter of Scott and April Heimes received their “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” award at the library. They each received a reading certificate, medal and a book for their reading accomplishment! Congrats to them for being great listeners and to mom and dad for helping them prepare for school! Merek will be attending Kindergarten next fall!
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.
