1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
SETS CHILDREN ON THE PATH TO SUCCESS . . .
ONE BOOK AT A TIME

Families are invited to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Calloway County Public Library. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to read aloud to their children regularly. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.

Research shows that the most reliable predictor of school success is being read to during early childhood. Reading to children from an early age can help close the vocabulary gap and prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills they need to succeed. Most importantly, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is available to all families with children between the ages of birth and five years.

Program registration is available Monday-Friday, 9:00-11:00 AM and 1:30-4:00 PM. **Appointments for Alternate times are available by emailing sandy.linn@callowaycountylibrary.org. **Please note that sometimes CCPL special events, classes, & activities may take place during the designated times.  When this occurs, CCPL Program Staff Members will be unable to assist with registration and patrons will be asked to leave contact information so that a Staff Member may set up an appointment for registration.

Participants will receive program materials and instructions at the time of registration. For more information, call CCPL’s Sandy Linn at (270) 753-2288 or email sandy.linn@callowaycountylibrary.org. This program is free of charge.
