1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Read 1,000 books?

We know. 1,000 books sounds like a lot, but it’s easier than it sounds. We did the math!

If you read:

  • 1 bedtime story every night for 3 years, you will have read 1,095 books. 
  • 3 books every day, you will have the same 1,095 books under your belt in just one year!  
  • 10 books a week for 2 years, you will have read 1,040 books.
  • Double that rate and you will have read 1,040 books in just one year.

How do you sign up?  Stop by Hastings Memorial Library, fill out a simple registration form, and pick up your log book! Each log sheet has 100 places to write down the books you read.  Once you fill out the first sheet, come back to the library.  We will chart your progress on your registration form and give you the next log sheet.

Wanna know the best part?  You get prizes, too!  Prizes are given at 100, 250, 500, 750, and 1,000 books!  Ready to sign up?  Come visit us today to get started.  Want to know more?  Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page!
