For Parents

We offer this program to you free: "The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge is a simple (read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten) and very manageable endeavor."  There are stickers and other prizes when a milestone, like 100 books, has been reached.

Please ask library staff for the introductory pack and any other questions!
