1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a reading incentive program that encourages parents to read 1000 books to their children before they begin Kindergarten.  The program is based upon evidence from research findings that the more young children hear books read to them, the more prepared they will be to learn to read upon reaching kindergarten.   Starting October 2, caregivers of children ages 5 & under can begin registering for the program online from the Library’s website.  The books can be recorded either online or on a paper log.  Children will receive a lanyard with a library card holder after completing 25 books, and will continue to earn “Smart Stripes” for every 100 books (up to 1000) that they can attach to their lanyard.  Click on 1000 Books
