1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Help your infant, toddler or preschooler strengthen their vocabulary and language skills while promoting the habit of reading by participating in our 1,000 Books program. Research has shown that Increased vocabulary and language skills are important tools for children to have as they begin to learn to read in kindergarten.

To start the program while the library building is temporarily closed, please register at After registering, write down the titles or the number of books read using a 1,000 Books reading log, a piece of paper, or the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten app. Reading logs are available at When the library building reopens, show us your child’s reading logs to receive awards such as a tote bag, free books and a 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten t-shirt.

Tip: If you read one book multiple times, you may write the title down every time you read the book. Why? Because the program isn’t about individual titles; it’s about the habit of reading, plus, children learn by repetition so reading a book many times is actually quite beneficial for kids!
