1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Monday, May 31, 2021
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
All Branches

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program encouraging you to read 1,000 books with your child before they start kindergarten. The program is self-paced and you decide how often and how long you will read to your child. It can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. When you register for the program, you can come pick up a welcome packet, including a finger puppet and physical reading logs to color in! There will also be occasional surprises throughout the game, like stickers, a halfway-there certificate, and more (you can even earn a happy dance with a librarian)! When you finish the program, you’ll receive a graduation certificate, an invite to a quarterly themed storytime, a free book, and a farm friend adoption kit (just a stuffie, not a real one). Sign up online.

Bloomingfoods Positive Change for Friends of the Library

7:30 AM - 10:00 PM
Positive Change
Other
Bloomingfoods members selected Friends of the Library for their Positive Change initiative for the month of May! The Positive Change program is a community-driven fundraising campaign that offers shoppers the opportunity to round their purchase up to the nearest dollar, or donate more if they wish. Shop local at Bloomingfoods, and round up a little during the month of May to make much needed library resources accessible to everyone in our community. Any amount raised during the first 7 days of the month will be matched by a generous anonymous donor!

Since 1976 Bloomingfoods has endeavored to be a positive force in this community; working to meet the needs of local folks, support local food, and build a healthy local economy. They believe that community-based organizations are vital to the health and wellness of this community, and they want to help them succeed! Since its rollout in January 2016, shoppers have raised an incredible $490,000 for local non-profits through the Positive Change initiative.
