Get your child reading with 1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Shreve Memorial Library is excited to announce a program to encourage early children’s literacy. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten will let patrons keep track of how many books their children read. The goal of the program is to read to your child every day and reach 1000 books before your child enters kindergarten.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a reading program for infants through preschoolers and their families. Reading is a vital part of everyday life and learning for your child. This program will help you kick start your child’s education and teach them a love of words, reading, and books.

Quality time with your child is also important to their education. By pledging to read regularly with your child, you will have many opportunities to bond as you reach 1000 books before kindergarten!

How the Program Works:

  • Register your child for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten by visiting our Beanstack site. (You can also visit any branch of our library and staff will help you sign up.)
  • Read to your child every day and use the Reading Log in Beanstack to keep track of the books they read.
  • Visit the library often for more books to borrow. Your child will receive a sticker for every 100 books and a certificate for every 200 books.
  • Once your child reaches 1000 books, they will receive a certificate of completion and a book to keep!

By participating in the program, you will be helping your child develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national nonprofit initiative that seeks to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers, as well as encourage parent and child bonding through reading.

We are excited to be a part of 1000 Books Before Kindergarten and hope you are too. Get involved and help share the joy of reading with your child!
