1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

 This program is for babies, toddlers, and children who have not started kindergarten yet.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a nationwide program to encourage reading with children.

For every book read, a child or caregiver fills in a circle. Every 100 circles are turned in for fun prizes, including a picture book, a puppet, and a tee shirt.

Once 1,000 books are read, the child receives a special certificate and gets their picture taken for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten hall of fame book which is on display at the library.

Sign up and log books using the Beanstack App and Website.

Stuffed Animal Sleepover

Once a quarter, the library hosts Stuffed Animal Sleepover where kids are invited to come to the library in their pajamas and bring their stuffie for a fun hour long program where we read books, craft with our stuffies, and then say goodnight. Stuffies sleep at the library and photos are taken of their antics “after the lights go out at the library.” Kids pick up their stuffies the next day and get to go home with a special photo of their stuffie’s antics.
