1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Hello Future Kindergarteners!

We invite you to join families all over the country in setting the goal to read 1,000 books together before children enter kindergarten.  It’s never too early to start. Pick up a reading log at the library for your infant, toddler, or preschooler. Parents and caregivers read books aloud and record them in the log. Look for the milestones at 250, 500, and 750 books when you can come to the library to get prizes for your reading accomplishments. When you’ve read 1,000 books and are ready for kindergarten, we’ll throw a big celebration in your honor!


Did you complete the 1,000 Books Challenge? Are you starting kindergarten next fall? Hooray! Check back in Spring of 2023 for details on the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Celebration.
