1,000 Books Before Kindergarten ( en Español)

Parents may register their child for 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten at any time. Sign up below, then pick up your binder in the Children’s Department to start tracking your reading! Read at your own pace, reread favorite books, and foster a love of reading in your family!

When you’re finished with all 1,000 books, stop in at the library to pick up your prize and take a picture to hang on our Wall of Fame!

Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they can actually read and write. Research shows that children get ready to read years before they start school. You can help your child learn important skills now so they can become good readers!

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten was created by Sandy Krost, our former Children’s Librarian.

It is never too early to start reading with your child!
