1000 Books Before Kindergarten

It’s Easy to Participate!

Step 1: Ask a librarian for the FREE starting kit.

Step 2: Read a book with your child and cross off a circle on your Reading Record.

Step 3 and beyond: Repeat!

When 100 books are read, show your Reading Record to a librarian for a prize. Move your name marker up the wall of progress. Get a new Reading Record and keep going!  One thousand books sound like a lot, but it's easier than you think. Read 3 books a day for a year and you’ve already read over 1000 books or 10 books a week for 2 years, and you’ve done it too!  More questions?  Click here.
