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.
Join us as we create a safe space to discuss books written by and for LGBTQ+ individuals. In November and December, we'll discuss We Do This 'Til We Free Us: Abolitionist Organizing and Transforming Justice by Mariame Kaba. Participants can choose to join the Sunday sessions from 1:30–3 PM or the Monday sessions from 6–7:30 PM. Age 16 and up. Please register for the Zoom link and book by emailing Linds Badger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A partnership between Middle Way House and the Library.
