1000 Books Before Kindergarten
A special program for preschoolers at Rolling Hills Library is 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. Read a book to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler, you can even read the same books over and over again. The goal is to read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten. If you read just one book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years, so if you start at birth you have plenty of time before they start school.
The library will provide log sheets or you can use a mobile app to keep track. Prizes are offered at different milestones throughout the program as well as at the end when 1000 books is reached. We also like to post milestones reached on our social media (with parental permission) to help motivate others to keep working towards their goal.
