1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Register at the library and get your tracking sheets.

Read to your baby or toddler.

It’s never too early to start a child's love for books.

Read 3 books a day for 1 year = 1095.

After every 100 sheet is filled, bring it to the library and a balloon with your child’s name will go up on our blue sky chart.

At the end, your child will get their photo taken for the newspaper and website, a certificate of accomplishment, and a free book!
