1000 Books Before Kindergarten Awarded


Congratulations to three year old Athena Bottolfsen, daughter of Troy and Nicole Bottolfsen for completing the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program at the Hartington Public Library. She received a metal, certificate, prize and a FREE book from the library for her reading accomplishment. Great job to Athena, for being a good listener and to her parents for taking time out to read to her. She loves all the books at the library, particularly books on snails.

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 adventure for your child, please stop by or call the Hartington Public Library at 402-254-6245.
