1000 Books Before Kindergarten Goes Virtual

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books) before your little one starts kindergarten. 

Does it sound hard? If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 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 let's get started! Stop by the library or start logging online right now using Wandoo Reader.

Finishers receive a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten t-shirt, get their picture on the wall of the Youth Area, and can celebrate their achievement by running through the library with a cowbell while staff and patrons cheer them on.
