Visit the Children’s Room to get more information about 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten and to meet the librarians. If you read just 3 books a day you will reach the 1,000 books goal in one year! The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books helps a child learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge — all important skills that help prepare a child for learning to read and entering kindergarten. Children get to place a sticker on the wall for every 100 books read… and who knows? Maybe Clover the bunny will make a special appearance to say congratulations.
