 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Logo 

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (BBK) program is designed to help parents prepare their children for one of life’s big milestones: kindergarten. Come to the library, anytime, to sign up and get the information you need. You can use the reading log we provide, to keep track of the books, or you can use the 1000 Books app. After every 50 books you read, stop in at the library for a reward.

It is possible to read 1,000 books to your child before Kindergarten:

 1 book per day x 3 years = 1,095 books

10 books per week x 2 years = 1,040 books

3 books per day x 1 year = 1,095 books
