1000 Books Before School
1000 Books Before School encourages early childhood literacy and introduces young children to the world of reading.
Parents can join their children at any time during the year. If the child attends Storytime or Rhymetime at the library, the books read will count towards the 1,000 total.
An investment of one book a day, three to four minutes, is all that is necessary to open a child's mind to a lifelong love of books and learning.
Children will receive certificates as they reach the milestones of 50, 100, 250, 500, 750 and then 1,000 books to mark their achievement. When the child starts preschool or school they will have a head start in learning to read and write.
