1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

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. 

Now more than ever is the perfect time to log what you're reading!  Visit the Children's Desk to complete your child's registration and to pick up your prize after you finish a reading log.

Here is your first log sheet for books 1 - 100.  You may also pick up this sheet and the next 9 logs at the Children's Desk.

Welcome to your NEW New Providence Memorial Library!

If you haven't visited us lately, be sure to come in and experience all that has changed. Our new layout has something for everyone. Browse our new displays, choose your favorite spot to cozy up and read, or sit down to work. Explore our expanded catalog now that we're part of the MAIN Library Alliance. You can request materials in our online catalog from any member library to be delivered here for you to pickup, if we don't have what you need in house. 

We are thrilled to be FINE FREE in an effort to encourage you to come back and keep borrowing. Your library card is your key to all free subscriptions, online resources, and digital materials, too. So get your library card and make a note of your barcode number!

Come discover, collaborate and connect with Your Library this winter and all year long. Visit our Calendar for our program schedule. Join us!

We look forward to seeing you here,

~ Stacey Maisch, Library Director
