1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is an early literacy initiative which encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he/she starts Kindergarten.  This program provides a wonderful opportunity to share the love of reading with your child, while exploring the library and all that it offers.  Keep track of what you are reading with your child and the library will provide small incentives when he/she reaches a milestone. 

While the library is closed, you can still participate!  Now more than ever is the perfect time to log what you're reading!  Download and print reading log sheets and book suggestions right at home! Haven't signed up?  Email Ms. Sam at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Visit the Children's desk when the library reopens to complete your child's registration and to pick up any prizes accumulated during the closure.
