Think about it:

  • Studies have proven that children get ready to read years before they enter school. They explore print all around them, use language to communicate, are storytellers and recognize letters. These are the skills they need to have to be ready to read and the best way to get those skills is to be read to.
  • 1,000 books may seem like a big number if you haven’t broken it down.
    Want to spread the reading over 5 years? Then you would need to read a book every other day.
    Want to finish the program in 2 years? That’s only less than 2 books a day.

How it Works:

  • Sign up for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program
  • Keep track of what you are reading and log online
  • Visit Louisburg Library after every 100 books to claim your prize
  • When you and your child has read a total of 1,000 books, visit the library for your final prize and a photo to add to our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten display

What we Suggest:

  • Have Fun! Read a variety of books in a variety of places...read Curious George while outside at a picnic or read Punk Farm during bath time
  • Visit Story Time
  • Tell your own story
  • Read their favorites but also add some new books to expose new words and concepts as much as possible
