                                                                  1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The objectives of this program are:

  • to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers
  • to encourage parent and child bonding through reading

Numerous studies estimate that as many as one in five children have difficulties learning to read.  Reading has been associated as an early indicator of acedemic success.  Public formal education does not typically start until ages 5-6.  Before then, parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-5 early critical years.  The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a simple (read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten) and very manageable endeavor.

The Library's goal is to provide a simple, innovative, yet fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills, in order to help children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.

At the Library we have all the materials you need to get started with this program, as well as what you need to continue in it.
