Congratulations goes to Kendra Schmit, daughter of Nick and Jessica Schmit who received her “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” award at the Hartington Public Library. She received a certificate, medal and a book for her reading accomplishment! Kendra currently attends Holy Trinity PreSchool and is a regular visitor to the library. She will be attending Kindergarten next fall!
This program was developed to instill the love of reading, get children ready for school, and to encourage more parent/child library visits. Books are logged and prizes are awarded along the way. One of the best ways to encourage pre-reading skills is to spend time sharing books each and every day! Reading provides a solid foundation, a key to school and learning success. When you as a parent read to your child, you help him or her develop the skills they will need to learn to read by themselves.
If you are interested in learning more about this reading journey for your child, please stop by or call the library at 402-254-6245.
