1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
Prepare your little one for kindergarten through the world of books. The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. For each milestone you reach in your journey (200, 400, 600, 800, and 1,000 books), your little one will receive a prize. For more information or to register your little one, contact the library reception desk.
