1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know that introducing infants and young children to reading is the best way to improve their cognitive development? It also helps build their language acquisition, literacy skills, and more when they are read to on a regular basis.

That is why we offer the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program!
Sign up is free with your library card!

“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 (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).”
