1000 Books Before Kindergarten


Parents are encouraged to stop by the library to sign their children up for the popular 1000 Books before Kindergarten children’s program.    This simple and free program encourages all parents and caregivers to read to their children, ensuring a solid foundation for learning when their child reaches kindergarten.

Many studies indicate that engaging in reading to newborns, infants and toddlers increases reading readiness, develops vocabulary, increases interest in printed works and instills a positive attitude about reading.  Sharing books with your child helps them learn the skills to become a reader as well as encourages parent and child bonding. 

Any child that has not yet started kindergarten is eligible for the program.  It’s easy, just sign up, read and turn in the reading record for your child to receive awards and recognition in the 1000 books before Kindergarten program.   A prize is given for each 100 books read with a $25 cash card given at the completion.   

This is a self-paced program.   Get started today.
