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 online (HERE).
2. Create an account under your name if you do not already have an account. Then add your child under your account. Log books. You can log by title, isbn, author, or just log as a book. 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. You will receive a digital badge for every 25 books read. When you finish 100 books, come to the library and receive a sticker .
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 feel 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.
