1,000 Books Before Kindergarten - Now Online!

Birth - 6 years old (or until your child enters Kindergarten)

Our goal is to encourage a simple, yet innovative approach to establish strong early literacy skills and to help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.

The process is EASY!

  1. Register with this form
  2. START READING!
  3. After every 100 Books your child reads, use the Book Log Form to submit that set of 100 books.
  4. Repeat until you hit 1,000!
  5. HAVE FUN and ENJOY!

The goal is to read 1,000 books before your child starts Kindergarten.  It sounds like a big number, but you'll get there faster than you will believe!

  • Count every book that child reads.
  • Yes, even the ones that they read over and over and over again. Count each time you read that book!
  • Count every book they hear during Storytime (in person or online with us or with other storytellers)!
  • Count every book read at daycare or preschool!

Win Prizes!

When the library reopens we will have a set of prizes for your child!  Yes every 100 Books your child earns a new prize or new book! And when they finish their 1,000 Books we have an EXTRA SPECIAL surprise! We will have further instructions regarding that once a date is set in place for our doors to be open again.
