1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is here!
The idea is simple: read 1,000 books to your child before they begin Kindergarten. Research shows that reading to children from an early age can improve vocabulary and help prepare children for Kindergarten. Reading to children also begins the lifelong love of books and reading.
Sign up for the program in the Youth Room at the Youth Reference Desk or online with READsquared. For every 100 books you read together you will receive a FREE book until you reach your goal of 1,000 books read! We have special prizes for those who read 1,000!
We know you might read the same book 10 times a week, and that’s normal. Count each reading! As an extra bonus — count all the books read when you attend Storytime events in person or online.
Again, storytimes count toward books read! You can find a full schedule of Library events, including Storytimes, on our Calendar.
