The 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program encourages families to read at least 1,000 books to their preschooler, birth to age 5, before they enter school.

Families can sign up for the free program any time they visit the library. Each child will receive a reading log to record the books they read and each time a goal of 100 books is reached, kids bring their log to the library to receive a sticker and another reading log.
Children who complete the program get to pick out a book which will include a photo and nameplate of the date they finished.
