Reading Programs

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Reading aloud with children is the single most important activity parents and other adults can do to prepare children to learn to read. It’s not that difficult to read 1,000 books before kindergarten. If you read just 3 books every day, by the end of a year, you’ll have read 1095 books!  Stop by the children’s circulation desk to register for this fun and simple program, pick up your booklet and start reading!
