1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is an early literacy program offered at different libraries across the nation to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers. Designed for children from birth to age five, this program helps children develop the tools they need to become proficient readers and encourages parent and child bonding through the activity of reading together. Log the books you and your child read together to earn badges and prizes along the way.

Anyone under the age of five can sign up on the Beanstack app or by calling/visiting the library.
