1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge

In January of this year we challenged children under 5 years old and their families to “catch the reading bug” by reading a total of 1000 books before entering kindergarten.

 

We just had our first participants complete the task!  Congratulations to Willa and Etta for reaching their goal!  They received a new book, a certificate of completion and a fun pair of “reading glasses”!

We have about 15 other children recording their books as well.  Each family receives a tote bag to start and will have a jar on the wall to record how many books they’ve read (one bug for each 100 books).  If your child would like to participate please contact the library to register.
