1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The library runs a year round reading program for children who have not yet entered kindergarten. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program encourages parents and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their child before they enter school – a goal experts say helps prepare children to be successful readers once they enter school. Reading to children helps to develop important literacy skills that provide a solid foundation for learning and academic success. This program has no end date except when a child enters school.

To participate:

  • To register, visit Beanstack or download the Beanstack app.
  • Read together and log the titles in Beanstack.
  • After each 100 books, visit the library to place your name on our Readers Board and receive a prize.
