1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program

Join our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program.

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).

The parent and child must have a valid FREE library card.  Sign up for a library card at the library if you need one.  We have the registration form and reading logs to get you started.  It is a great opportunity for your family to bond and your child(ren) to hear more words and learn the love of reading.

Stop in today and let’s be on this journey together!
