New Library Program - 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Written by:

1000 Books Before KindergartenDo you have children between 0 and 5 years of age? If so, 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is the Library program for you! GCLD Libraries encourage all Grand County families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten. Studies show that families who start reading aloud to children at birth strengthen language skills and build vocabulary—two important tools for beginning readers. Sounds daunting?  Reading only 3 books a day adds up to over 1,000 books a year! Only one a book a day equals 1,000 books read by the time a new baby is three. Commit to making a difference!

How Does 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Work?

Register – At any Grand County Branch Library and take home your first reading log and starter packet.  Sign up is ongoing, so stop by your library anytime to begin.
