1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Logo for the 1000 books before kindergarten program

tree to keep track of the number of books you have read

Goal is simple: read 1,000 books with your child before they hit kindergarten.

Sounds like a lot, huh?  Don't worry!

1 book a day for 3 years = 1096 books
3 books a day for 1 year = 1096 books

Join the program by signing up at the children's desk!  Get a log and cross off a symbol for each book you read - repeats count, books heard in storytime count, books read by family and friends count!

Win a prize for every 100 books you read and advance your raccoon token up the tree!
