1000 books before kindergarten train

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This free, self-paced program helps adults read to their children, ages 5 and younger. The goal is to finish 1,000 books before a child begins Kindergarten. Kids get prizes from the library for every milestone.

How to participate

  • Read to your child. Studies have shown that reading together promotes bonding and strong relationships. You create lasting memories of this time.
  • Keep track of the books you read. Use a tracking sheet from the library.
  • Bring the completed tracking sheet back to the library. Children receive rewards at each milestone and get to add stickers to the "Reading Train". When you complete 100 books, pick up a new tracking sheet to continue.
  • When your child completes 1000 books we will add their name to our “Reading train” display for recognition.

Does that seem overwhelming?

If you read just 1 book a day, that would be 365 books the first year, 730 books by the second year and 1,095 books by the end of the third year!

You may re-read books, you can begin any time, and you may read more than one book per day. Any time your child hears a book read aloud can be counted: story time at the library, listening to a sibling read, a baby-sitter, grandparents...anyone!

For questions or more information about this program, please call or contact the Children's Librarian.
