1000 books before Kindergarten

Babies, toddlers, and preschool-aged children are also eligible for the Summer Reading Program. Preschool-age children and younger need to read (or have read to them) 20 books to complete the Summer Reading program. Reading to preschool-aged children builds vocabulary, language skills, and helps prepare them with the skills they need for kindergarten.

In as little as 15 minutes a day, families can build the skills for future school and life success. These books also count towards the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge, a Library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten.
