1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Sign up for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Challenge and enjoy reading 1000 books with your little one!

HOW IT WORKS
Read 1000 books with your child from birth to age 5.
• Log each book, or you can scan the book’s ISBN code.
• If you read a few books at a time, you can enter those at once.
• For every 100 books you log, you’ll earn a badge on Beanstack and a prize sticker to pick up at your next library visit.
• When you finish  1000 books, come back with your child to choose a free book!

Repeat readings of books are counted.

Happy Reading!
