Read 1000 books with your child before they start kindergarten

Sign up online or at the library

Families can log books read online or stop by the library and we will log them for you.  Children will earn prizes for every 50 books completed and when you reach 1000 books, your family will be invited to a BCCLS wide party to celebrate.

Reading to children, even before they can understand, teaches them to associate books with love and affection.  Studies also show that the more words that young pre-literate children are exposed to the bigger their vocabulary will grow and the quicker they will learn early literacy skills.
