1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless! Read a book (any book) to your child. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your little one starts kindergarten. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. The key is perseverance. To get started, stop by and get a logbook. For every 100 books your child reads, come into the library, get your logbook stamped, and receive a prize. When you reach 1,000 books, you can join our Wall of Fame and receive a Grand Prize!
