This fun and exciting reading program is for children ages 0-5 years. This program was developed to increase awareness of the importance of reading to very young children as well as encouraging parents to embrace their role as their child’s first teacher.  1,000 Books Before Kindergarten encourages families to read at least 1,000 books to their preschooler, birth to age 5, before they enter school. Families can sign up today at the Mary L. Cook Public Library. Each child will receive a folder with a page to record the books they read. Each time a goal of recording 20 books is reached, children are encouraged to bring their folder to the library to receive a sticker.  Each time the goal of recording 100 books is reached, children should bring their folder to the library to receive a free book.  Reading is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your child’s success when they begin school.


Summer Reading Fun is coming!  Reading and Registration will begin Wednesday, May 29.    Reading programs for all ages.  Watch for more details early May.
