K-5 Programs

Read 1,000 Books
Before Kindergarten

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national program that encourages parents to read 1,000 books with their child before they start Kindergarten.  It may sound hard, but if you read one book a night to your child for three years you will have read 1,095 books.  And if you already read to your child, you know you often read more than one book at a time.  So read a book, any book, to your infant or toddler before they start kindergarten and repeats are okay!

Please register at the Youth Services Desk and pick up a reading log for the first 100 books.  Also pick up a list or check out our website for a list of Books Your Child Should Hear Before Kindergarten.

The library reserves the right to photograph and videotape program participants. These photos and videos may be used in library publications and publicity including the website. Please notify library staff if you do not want your child or you to be photographed.
