1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Children who are registered in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program and started kindergarten this fall have until September 30 to turn in their log sheets and complete the 1000 Books program.  Remember that the goal for these children is 250 books, not 1,000 books. We want as many new kindergarteners as possible to successfully complete the program!  If you have questions, call Becky at 715-262-5555.1000 Books Before Kindergarten logo

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is an early literacy program that helps families make reading aloud a habit, which is the most effective thing parents can do to help get their children ready to read when they start school.  Thanks to a grant from the Prescott Foundation, the Prescott Public Library is able to support early literacy development in preschool children in our community with this program. 

Registration for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is ongoing.  Visit the library today to register your infant, toddler or preschooler.

More information is available here.
