1000 Books

Found this on the weekly notes from Julie Rios. As a retired educator, it struck a note with me! Thank you Justine and Library staff. Not sure who had the idea, but I love it! – Lil

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program begins!  The concept is simple, 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 they start kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. 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!  There are prizes for kids and families along the way.  Our Kick-Off Party is Saturday, 1/27, at 10 am.  If you can’t make the party, no worries.  Contact the library for more information.

    Can Grandmas volunteer to read?

      I would bet that you can do that. After all the beneficiary of being read to doesn’t care who shares the book. Just check at the library to register.

      Yes! Grandmas can do the program with their grandchildren!
