1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a Library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1000 books with their young children before they enter Kindergarten. Reading to preschool-age children builds vocabulary, language skills, and helps prepare them with the skills they need for Kindergarten. In as little as 15 minutes a day, families can build the skills for future school and life success.


 

How does 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten work?

Getting Started – Pick up a free 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Log at Oxford Public Library and start reading beginning March 1, 2017.

Track Your Reading – Each time you read a book with your child, record it in your reading log.

Show Us Your Reading Logs – Each time you and your child reach a milestone bring in your reading log and collect your prize. Read 1,000 books before kindergarten and your child will receive a free book of their very own.
