1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a Library program that encourages all families to read at least 1,000 books with their young children before they enter Kindergarten. Reading to preschool-age children builds vocabulary, language skills, and helps prepare them with the skills they need for Kindergarten. Preschool-age children, birth-5 years old, can participate and will receive reading rewards at the Library for every 100 books read to them. Come sign up your child today!
