Have you signed your little one up for our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program? It’s easy! Just check in with one of our librarians and they will get you started with a reading log. For every 100 books you and your child read, there will be a small incentive prize, and a bigger prize when they hit 1000! (Yes, you can count the same book more than once! Little ones love repetition!) 

1000 Books
