We invite any child who has not yet started kindergarten to join our version of the nationwide 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge!

Click the "Get Started" button below to sign up and start tracking , or visit the Youth Services desk for a paper option.
Tips and Tricks for Completing the Challenge
Reading one book per day will get you to 1,000 books in less than three years. Three books per day will have you there in less than one year!
Rereading the same book is not only allowed, but encouraged! Repetition is great for developing literacy skills.
A book counts toward the 1,000 no matter who the reader is! Bringing your child to the library for storytime is a great way to add several books in one day.
