1000 Books

Introducing a new free early literacy program that encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before they begin kindergarten! The program entails reading any book to your newborn, infant and/or toddler before they start kindergarten. It may sound hard to do, but it really is not! If you read just one book a night together, you will have read 365 books in a year! That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years! There are no restrictions as to which book you read or how many times you read it! It can include books read to your child by a teacher, a sibling, or during Story Time.
Each experience counts as a book read!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Any child from birth until they enter kindergarten, usually around the age of five.
More than one young family member in this age range may participate at the same time!
HOW TO GET STARTED!
Register yourself and your child(ren) at the children’s department at the Armada Library.
Pick up your packet which will include a book log and information about "1000 Books Before Kindergarten."
Keep track on the book log of each book read together. The program is self-paced and is not a contest or race!
When you reach the first 100 books read, bring your reading log to the library. You will receive your next book log to list your next 100 books! You must bring in your official book log to receive a surprise.
When you have finished 1,000 books, you will receive a certificate and the opportunity to choose a book and have a name plate inserted which celebrates your accomplishment!
Please contact the library if you have any questions.
