1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Sign up today!

Reading to your child is one of the most important ways to prepare them for school. Our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is open to District cardholders from birth until entering Kindergarten.

How do we start?

Visit any Library location to sign up. We'll give you materials to record the books you read with your child – and your child will receive some fun prizes along the way!

Start the program at any time and age prior to Kindergarten.

What should we read?

Read anything your child enjoys! You can choose Library books or books that you own. If you read a book more than once it counts each time you read it.

How long will this take?

Read at a pace that is comfortable for your family.

You can work toward your goal of reading 1000 books up until your child’s first day of Kindergarten.
