1000 Books Before Kindergarten

How does 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten work?

  1. Register your little reader at the library to receive their first 100 bookmark.
  2. Check off one character for each book read.
  3. Once all 100 characters have been checked off, bring the bookmark
    to the Children’s desk for the first reading prize and a new bookmark
    to track the next 100 books. Each 100 books will earn a new book.
  4. After 10 bookmarks have been turned in, and 1000 books have been
    read, your little reader will receive a t-shirt!

Reading 1,000 books isn’t as hard as it might sound. If you read only ONE bedtime story every night for three years, you will have read 1,095 books!

Our goal is for all preschool children, to read 1,000 books with their families before starting kindergarten.
