1000 Books before Kindergarten

Join us as we kick off this new fun and exciting program.  The goal is that children birth – Kindergarten have 1000 books read to them before they enter Kindergarten.  This will build their literacy skills that they will need once they reach school age.  Children will receive prizes for each 100 books they read.  Please visit with Ms. Joy about how you can sign your little one up for 1000Bb4K .

Funding for 1000Bb4K has been given by the Bethlehem Lutheran Church and their dedication to the youth o our community.
