Children who are not yet enrolled in Kindergarten are invited to participate in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. This free, ongoing program encourages parents to read 1,000 books with their child(ren) before he/she enters school. Parents can pick up a booklet at the library and keep track of titles read (yes, books can be read more than once and count each time!). Upon completion of every 100 books read, return the booklet to the library to receive a sticker. When 1,000 books have been read, bring the booklet to the library for a final time and receive a prize. Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (903) 935-4465. Here are some online resources available for this program:
