1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

We’d like to congratulate Kiki Swanson, Walker Barnhart, and Ephraim Hartman on reaching their goal to read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten! Each child received a Certificate of completion, sticker, and a free book upon reaching his or her goal. The parents who dedicated their time to reading to their children and giving them a boost up to Kindergarten also received a special thank you gift for building up these young readers!


Any child who lives in our service area and has not yet started kindergarten is eligible to join our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. No child is too young! In fact, we STRONGLY encourage parents to read to their children from birth. The program is easy and self-guided. Just sign up in the Children’s Department, pick up your program materials, and start reading!
