1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a free literacy program for newborns, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. The goal is to read 1000 books with your little one before they start Kindergarten. The program will help your little one develop a love of reading, provides you with opportunities to bond, and helps your child develop the early literacy skills they need for success later in life.
Track your progress by picking up a kit in our branches, use the READSquared app or download the form that you can print and colour yourself.
Remember, you can repeat books as many times as you want, and storytimes and audiobooks count, too.
When you’ve finished all 1000 books, your child will receive a certificate and their name will be proudly displayed on our brag wall.
