Featured Kids Program
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Nurture your child’s love of reading, invigorate their imagination, and develop their language and listening skills by reading 1,000 books before they start kindergarten. Sign up today and earn free prizes along the way!
How To Participate
- Register in person at your Library or sign up online.
- Record the number of books you read with your child online or on a Reading Log.
- Read books from your Library or your home—and read them as many times as you want! If you read the same book five times, that counts as five books.
- Visit the Library every time you read 100 books to receive a sticker.
Mark milestones with prizes!
For the first 100 books, visit the Library to select a prize from the treasure chest.
After reading 500 books, you’ll receive a brand new book.
Complete the challenge by reading 1000 books and you’ll earn a new backpack.
Teachers at child care centers and preschool programs can also join, track reading, and receive prizes for their classroom.
