The Library encourages parents of preschool children to stop in and enroll their child in the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club. This program encourages parents to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters school. This is a goal that reading experts recommend to help children learn to read. Reading together also helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation. Plus, sharing stories with your child is fun! Special awards will be received along the way.
