1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Welcome to the 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program! This free program encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters school. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid foundation for learning success. Reading to your child is key to reading for your child.  Our libraries help you by making reading fun with the 1000 Books before Kindergarten program.
