1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

With every book that you read together, you are guiding your child along the path to learning - and learning doesn't begin with kindergarten. Reading to your child early and often sparks a sense of curiosity and creativity that will last a lifetime. Our new 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is an easy way to give your child the best possible head start. Register your little reader today!

  • Stop by the Children's Desk to register and pick up and informational booklet and your first log sheet.
    • Want to get started right away? Give us a call at 814.235.7817 to register, then download the booklet and 1-100 log sheet below.
