The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless! The goal is to read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just one book a night, you'll 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 five years of age, you have more time than you think!
Visit the youth area anytime to pick up a booklet. This is a work at your own pace program. Prizes will be awarded to participants when they reach 500 and 1,000 books.
Celebrate your freedom to read and check out a challenged book from our display — anytime, all month long! This event highlights books that have been challenged in libraries around the world.
