The library would like to congratulate Austin Sudbeck, son of Doug and Rachelle Sudbeck, and Jason, Nathan and Caleb Heimes, sons of Bill and Darla Heimes who recently completed the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program at the library. They each received a medal, certificate and new book for their reading accomplishment. Austin and Jason will be attending Kindergarten this 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.
If you are interested in learning more about this reading journey for your child, please stop by or call the Library at 402-254-6245.
