1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The Library Can Help Your Child Succeed in School!

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a non-profit program designed to help caregivers prepare children for one of life’s big milestones: Kindergarten.

Studies have shown that families who start reading to their children at birth help strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary.

Did you know that in as little as 15 minutes a day – that’s three, five-minute stories – families can build the skills their children need for future success in school and in life? It’s true!

Reading with your young child helps to stimulate brain development and strengthens a parent’s relationship with the child.

How The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program Works

Any child who hasn’t entered Kindergarten yet is eligible for the program, including infants. Sign your child up for FREE at either location of the Heritage Public Library
