- to promote a lifelong love of books and reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers
- to encourage parent and child bonding through reading
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.
Registration for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is open to all families with children between the ages of birth and five years at all our branches. Pick up a reading log or download the mobile app for your device.
