1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Thank you for joining this program, which will help prepare your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten. Ask our friendly staff for suggestions—we’re here to help you on your journey to 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!
You can log your books on a computer or a mobile device, log your books on printed logs, or use a combination of both. For each 100 books read, you and your child can come to the library to receive a sticker and more good book recommendations.
Remember, every book counts. Even if your child wants to hear the same book, again and again, you can count it each time.You can also count the books your child hears in storytime, in daycare or preschool, or with a friend or family member, as long as your child listens to the entire book.
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program is funded with a Success by Six mini-grant awarded by the Keene and Elm City Rotary Clubs.
