1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Posted by suzanne on

Families of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are invited to join our new 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program.  The  program challenges families to read 1000 books together before a child’s first day of kindergarten.  Because reading together early has been linked to school success, this challenge aids in getting a child ready for school while promoting positive family interaction.  Families will receive small incentives throughout their adventure to reach 1000 books and the library will be hosting special programs for participants.  Upon reaching 1000 books, children receive a certificate, book, and special photo magnet to commemorate their accomplishment.  Every 100 books read also earns an entry into drawings held every two months for a backpack full of kindergarten school supplies.

The library will be kicking off program registration on February 4th with a special activities from 5-8 p.m. beginning with at special Story Time at 5 p.m. in the Children’s Room.  Loose parts, including the big blue blocks, and special art activities will be available in the meeting room.
