“1000 Books Before Kindergarten” – Ongoing

A literacy initiative designed to share 1,000 books with your young child prior to their start of kindergarten. Participation is ongoing at a pace that works for each individual family.  The only time constraint is that it must be completed before the start of kindergarten, so registration as young as infant/toddler age is encouraged. Reading aloud to your young child sets the foundation for school success!
