1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Ongoing – Sign Up Here
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national program with a very simple goal: to create lifetime readers starting at a very early age. Reading with your child benefits development and allows you to create a family bond. Start reading and tracking your books with your little one (birth-Kindergarten) – it’s never too early! You can log your books digitally or using our simple printable tracker. Your child will receive badges and stickers along the way and a git and certificate when they reach the goal. Reading the same book again and again (as children often want to do) counts!

Read to a Dog with VenusParker Room
Mondays in February & March, By appointment Register (New Dates!)
Children can sign up to read a book or books of their choice to retired therapy dog Venus “one-on-one” for 20 minutes. The purpose of this program is to encourage independent reading, improve language skills, and give children a sense of security and confidence in their reading ability. Registration is required – one child per time slot. We welcome children of all abilities.
