1000 Books Before Kindergarten
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.
