1000 Books

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is an early literacy program for infants and children up to age 5.

How to Participate:

  •  Sign up in the Children’s Room and receive your 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Folder.
  • Read with your child. Studies have shown that reading with your child provides a great opportunity for bonding. Reading together is fun and will provide life-long memories for both of you.
  • Every time you share a book with your child check off the next number on your log sheet in your folder.   Repetition is great for learning so feel free to check off a separate number each time you read the same book.  
  • When you complete 50 books or more, Be sure to bring your folder with your log sheets to the library for a sticker & a trip to the treasure box.
  • When you have read 250 books your child’s name will be included on our wall of stars.
  • When you reach 1000 books recorded, your child will receive a special gift from the library and a certificate for completing the program!
