1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN

1000 Books is a national program developed to encourage early literacy development by reading to young children. The program is simple. Pick up a reading record for the first 100 books at the Youth Services Desk or print online by clicking this link (PDF). Read 100 books together, then bring the completed log to the library to pick up your child’s recognition and the next reading record. The program lasts until you have read 1,000 books with your child or they start kindergarten.1,000 books may sound like a lot, but by reading just one book a night, you could read over 1,000 books together in just three years.
