Read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten with your child!

The idea is simple: build a daily reading habit with your child, log your reading, and earn prizes!


Register your infant, toddler, or preschooler any time before they start kindergarten and start reading. Log the books you read. What counts towards your reading? EVERYTHING! You can read the same book 1000 times; you can read 1000 different books. You can hear books at storytimes at The Library and they count. An older sibling or grandparent can read, and it still counts!

Read three books a day, and you’ll be done in less than a year!

Earn a prize book at 100 books, 500 books, and 1000 books, and sign our wall of readers at your library every time you hit a 100 book milestone.
