1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Written By: Donna Christiansen - Aug• 29•14

We have just started a new program at the Library called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. It is a free program that encourages you to read 1000 books to your child before he or she enters Kindergarten – a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves. Here are the easy steps for participation: register at the Library, read a book to your child and write the title on your logbook, when you finish 25 books bring your logbook to the library and receive a prize out of the Treasure Chest! Receive a free book for each 100 books read! After finishing 1000 books, your child will receive a book and a certificate, has his or her name placed on our Wall of Fame, and Gets an awesome jumpstart on success in school.
