1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
All is takes is 3 books a day for 1 year!

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a free program that encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before they enter school -- a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves and install a lifelong love of reading and learning.

Here are the easy steps to participate:
1. Sign up at the library or online (here).
2. Pick up or print out the 0-100 record. Mark of a circle each time you read a book with your child. If you read a book more than once, you can record it each time. Books read at library storytime, daycare, or by others to your child also count!
3. When you finish 100 books, bring your sheet to the library and receive a sticker for your completed sheet. Then collect your next 100 book record.
4. We have a special rewards when you complete 500 books and 1,000 books.

This activity must be completed by the time your child enters kindergarten, so don't fee rushed. Take every chance to read with your child, talk about the stories, recite nursery rhymes, sing songs, and attend library programs. By reading just three stories a day, you and your child will have read over 1,000 books in one year! You will also have shared many special moments along the way.

The library is a fun place featuring books to check out, free programs, and great suggestions for what to read. Stop in often and talk to our friendly staff -- we are here to help.

Happy reading!!!
