The library's brand new 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (1KB4K) program was introduced on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 during our El Dia de Los Libros Celebration.  

The 1KB4K program is a family reading project for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.  Why participate in 1KB4K? Research tells us that reading with your child increases their reading readiness and helps prepare them for a successful school experience. Not to mention, it's fun!

Here is a quick overview of the program:

What:          Rewarding families for taking the time to read together.          

Who:           Any child from birth until he/she enters kindergarten.

Where:        Anywhere! At home, at the library, at preschool/daycare, etc.

Why:           Reading to your child reaps huge rewards.

How:           Read books, record them, and collect prizes.

When:         The only deadline is the start of kindergarten.
