  • 1000 Books Before Kindergarten
    When: Wednesday, November 01, 2017 12:00 AM
    Where: Prairie Trails Public Library District

    Prairie Trails Public Library invites you to join the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program.


    Sign up starts on Saturday, January 7th and is open to Prairie Trails Public Library cardholders. To register bring your Prairie Trails Library card to the Youth Services Desk starting on January 7th or any day after. An adult may register up to 3 children on one adult library card.


    This program challenges you to read 1000 books with your child before they begin kindergarten. Reading aloud to your child and sharing in the reading experience is an excellent way to increase your child’s early literacy skills and prepares them for kindergarten. Completing this program builds a solid foundation for school readiness, brings you closer together as a family, and is just plain fun!


    Don’t let the number 1000 intimidate you, it’s not as large as it sounds. Did you know that if you read 3 stories a day for one year, you will achieve 1000 books very quickly?


    You will receive a book log upon registration to record the number of books you read together with your child. If you read a book more than once, count it more than once! Don’t forget to include books from any programs or storytimes you attend at the library as well. Children will receive recognition and prizes along the way as you complete your book log together. There is no end date for the challenge except for your child’s first day of kindergarten. There is no need to rush!
