Reading Programs

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a year-round library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten.

Twice a year, we have a graduation ceremony at Bowman Library to acknowledge the graduates of the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.

Come in to Bowman Library or Handley Library to sign up.
