1000 Books Before Kindergarten
In-library prizes currently suspended, but you may still download reading logs and continue tracking your progress at home.
Click HERE to register for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. The concept is simple and the rewards are priceless. Read any book to your child–infant, toddler, or preschooler–until you have read 1,000 books together. After registering, come to the Children’s main floor reference desk to receive your first 100 books record log. Record each book you and your child read together by simply marking the icon on the record sheet. You may read the same book multiple times. You can also count books heard at storytime, daycare and preschool.
After each set of 100 books is read and recorded, take your log to Children’s desk to receive the log for your next 100 books. Small rewards are earned with completion of 100 books and 500 books. After reading the 1000th book, your child will receive a certificate of completion, a free book, and will be eligible to attend the 1000 Books before Kindergarten Celebration.
