1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Reading with your child is a great way to establish early literacy skills, as well as encouraging parent and child bonding through reading.

Ready to get started? Here’s what you need to know.

  • Register your child online here or in person at the library, make a bus with your child’s name, and pick up your first tracking sheet.
  • For every 100 books your child reads, submit the completed tracking sheet to receive a prize and move their bus around Allendale!
  • Have fun!
