1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
SETS CHILDREN ON THE PATH TO SUCCESS . . .
ONE BOOK AT A TIME
We are inviting families with children ages 0-5 to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Amargosa Valley Public Library. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to read aloud to their children regularly. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children with essential early literacy skills.
Research shows that the most reliable predictor of school success is being read to during early childhood. Reading to children from an early age can help close the vocabulary gap and prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills they need to succeed. Most importantly, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is available to all families with children between the ages of birth and five years. Registration is open. For more information, call the library at 775-372-5340.
This program is free of charge.
Summer reading is over but we have other reading challenges and kits available throughout the year. Checkout our Beanstack website for new challenges.
Summer reading will start early this year due to COVID-19. The library will start putting kits together for families to take home if they wish. If not we will have recommendations for books and other activities Online in a week or two.
First register at Beanstack where you will keep track of the books read, earn badges, prizes, and tickets to drawings.
If you need help registering call 775-372-5340.
