1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Friday, December 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.
