Reading with your child is not only a great way to help your child develop important literacy skills, but is also a wonderful way to bond and create memories with your child.  Enroll in this fun, low-stress program and start reaping the benefits of reading together today. 

How to Participate

  • Pick up a packet with information and a reading log for books 1-100, or download and use the free 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten app on your smartphone.    
  • Start keeping track of the books you read with your child.  Does your child want to hear the same book again and again? It counts every time you read it! The books your child reads with grandparents, siblings, babysitters, or at story times also count.
  • Bring your completed log or app to the kid's circulation desk and get a sticker for each 100 books. Pick up a new log. Repeat.
  • Once you have read 500 books, bring your log to the kid's circulation desk and receive a sticker, a new log, and a special prize.
  • Once you have read 1,000 books, bring your completed log to the kid's circulation desk and receive a sticker, a certificate of completion, and a free book.
