1000 Books

Sharing just one book a day gives your child the building blocks for lasting success! Reading sparks your child’s imagination and the rewards are priceless. Read any book to your infant, toddler or preschooler. The goal is to finish 1000 books before your child enters kindergarten. The library has special prizes for milestones as you go.
