Take the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge!

Dear Parents/Caregivers:

Our library is participating in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program. This is a free program to encourage you to read to the little ones in your life. (Yes you can repeat books!) Participation is simple: 1. Read to your children who are between the ages of birth and the start of kindergarten and 2. Record the books you read on a reading log. This simple idea can have a lifetime of reward for your child. Stop in to the library and ask Miss Lauren, or visit 1000booksbeforekindergarten.org if you have any questions about how to get started.
