1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The Children’s Branch is participating in the National 1000 Books before Kindergarten Program. One of the most effective ways to raise a child that reads is to be a reading role model. Children who are read to by their caregivers and see their caregivers reading for leisure are more likely to view reading as an enjoyable activity.

Participation in the program is easy and can be done at any time. If caregivers read one book a day to a child, that’s 365 books in a year and 1,095 at the end of three years. The goal of the program is to have 1000 books completed before the child begins kindergarten.

The reading logs are broken down into 100 book increments, and as children reach 100 book milestones they can bring their logs in to get their picture taken for our Facebook page (with parental permission) and other incentives as the program grows. Register at any time beginning January 3rd at the Octavia Fellin Library Children’s Branch and get reading!

For more information please call 505-726-6120 or email childlib@gallupnm.gov.
