1000 Books Before Kindergarten Awarded

Congratulations to Nick Heimes, son of Lee and Joan Heimes who just completed the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” at the Library!

Nick loves to come to the library to get new books, play puzzles, and recently discovered our new Lego table. He also likes to check out soccer books and will be attending Kindergarten the Fall of 2018.

This program was launched 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.

If you are interested in learning more about this reading journey for your child, please stop by or call the Hartington Public Library at
402-254-6245.
