Butler Memorial Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! Any child ages birth to five years can participate. Just follow these simple steps:
1. Register: Pick up program materials at the library or you may have received the materials from school.
2. Track Your Reading: Fill in a circle for each book that you read to your child on your reading record. 3. Every Book Counts: Even if your child wants to hear the same book again and again, you can count it each time. You can also count the books your child hears in story time, in daycare or preschool, or with a friend or family member, as long as the child listens to the entire book. 4. Milestones: We will have prize available for every 100 books completed up to 1000 books. Bring your completed sheets in to collect a prize and a new reading tracker sheet.
One thousand books may seem like a lot, but if you read just one book a night you will finish you journey in under three years. If you read 3 books every night then you’ll have in completed in just one year! Enjoy your journey to 1,000 books before kindergarten!
