1,000 Books before Kindergarten
Am I eligible?
Any child who has not yet started Kindergarten is eligible to sign up.
How do I sign up?
Stop by the Circulation Desk and register at any time to receive your first log sheet.
What do I do?
It’s easy, just color in a star after you read each book and then turn it in to any of the branches once you have completed your sheet for a sticker and a new log. Once you reach the 500 and 1,000 book goals you can come into the library and celebrate by picking out a brand new picture book to take home!
