1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge is a Library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books with their young children before they enter Kindergarten. Reading to preschool-age children builds vocabulary, language skills, and helps prepare them with the skills they need for Kindergarten. In as little as 15 minutes a day, families can build the skills for future school and life success.
Patrons can stop by the front desk of your local library and pick up a booklet to get started today!
Participants who complete the challenge will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Visa Gift Card, drawn every August.
