1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 books sounds like a lot of books, but if all you do is read your child one book every night at bedtime, you will have read 1,000 books before your child turns 3! Besides being a nice way to spend time together, you will be helping your child get ready for Kindergarten. 

After registering, you will receive a special email from Miss Kyrie with further instructions and personalized eBook recommendations that you can access with your library card!

Stop by the Youth Services Desk to claim your prizes!
