1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 books long iconHow It Works

  • Register at the Children’s Department for your reading log.
  • Color a circle for every book read together.
  • When you reach 25 books, bring in your log for your first prize – a reading rubber ducky!
  • When you reach 100 books you receive a book browsing bag, a “100 books” sticker, and a new reading log.
  • For every 100 books after, your child receives the matching sticker and your choice of reading rubber duckies.
  • 1,000 books earns your child a free book and a reading certificate.



Does reading the same book over and over count?

YES!  Children love and learn through repetition.  If you read the same book 3 times, color in 3 circles.


What books can I read?

Any books you want.  You can read books from home, the library, anything!  Books that your child listens to in storytimes at the library also count.  We’re also here to help you find books that you and your child will enjoy.

FUN FACT: Reading just 3 books a night, you will reach 1,095 books in 1 year!
