1000 Books before Kindergarten

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program challenges you to read 1000 books with your child before they enter school. Sharing books every day helps develop a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning success. Plus, reading together is fun! Talk about stories, share nursery rhymes, sing songs and attend library programs. By reading just 3 stories a day, you and your child will have read over 1000 books in one year!

Get started by downloading the free Beanstack app from the app store. Sign your child(ren) up for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten and start logging books. We have paper forms if you prefer. Come to the library to collect incentives. Log 1000 books and your child receives $50 from the Library Board of Trustees and an article, with picture, in the Depot Dispatch.
