“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.” -Emilie Buchwald
We are proud to announce our new and improved 1000 Books before Kindergarten program! 1000 Books is a free program that makes reading even more fun with stickers, badges, and prizes. Before school starts, parents and caregivers play an important role as teachers. 1000 Books can help guide families to help encourage a love of books in little ones. By reading with your child, you are creating the foundation for early literacy success. And be sure not to let the big number fool you. If you reader just three books per day, you’ll have read 1,095 books in a year!
Singing up for 1000 Books is easy! Follow the link below for easy to follow tutorials on how to register and track books. You may also stop by or call the library for assistance getting started.
Although creating a budding reader is a pretty cool result, we know that prizes are extra fun! That’s why kids who are a part of the 1000 Books Before Reader program can stop by the library for stickers, earn fun badges that track their progress, and will receive three prizes during the program. This includes a 100 book prize, a 500 book mid-way prize, and a 1000 book completion prize!
So sign up today and enjoy all the benefits (and prize perks) of being an early reader!
