1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Program Overview

One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation, a key to school and learning success. By reading less than 3 stories a day, you and your child will have read over 1,000 books in one year! Not to mention, sharing stories together is fun. 

How the program works:

Register and receive your library bag

Read to your child

Record each book read to your child

When you finish 500 books your child will receive a prize

After finishing 1,000 books your child will receive

1-A graduation party

2-A certificate of completion

3-An awesome jump start on success in school
