1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN CHALLENGE The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, toddler, and/or preschooler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really, if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started). The key is perseverance. To help, the Family Center will offer incentives. Come into Family Center and sign up today. You will receive a packet and bag to get you started. If your child was enrolled in the Summer Reading Program those books can be counted. Registration for the following programs is required and limited. In order to register for a Family Center program, your child's date of birth MUST be on file in the Family Center. A birth certificate or passport will be required as proof of age. Registration for all programs is age specific. Sign up in the Family Center or by telephone with your Library card.
