1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
It's never too early to start reading to your children. With this new early literacy pilot program, we're encouraging you to commit to reading 1,000 books to your child before they go to kindergarten. Children who listen to 500 books will earn a book to keep and those who reach 1,000 will receive a commemorative "1,000 Books" t-shirt.
Stop by the Children's Room for further details and to register. This is an ongoing program so you can sign up anytime.
