1000 Books Before Kindergarten
A fun, self-paced reading program designed to encourage families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their children before they begin kindergarten. As a self-paced program, families can sign up and start the program at any time throughout the year. Reading together offers your child the opportunity to develop pre-literacy and early literacy skills that leave them well-prepared for reading on their own later. It also is a great way to spend quality time together! Learn more…
BPL’s Diamond Club is a great way to Rediscover READING!
To celebrate the library’s 75th anniversary, we’re taking up the challenge to read 75 books this year. (Don’t worry…we have prizes along the way to celebrate the milestones with you.) Even if you don’t reach the goal of 75 books, hopefully you’ll read more books by participating in our Diamond Club. And that’s a good thing!
Participants receive an anniversary Playaway kit with a library lanyard and more! When patrons complete logs of 25, 50, and 75 books, they can receive other limited-edition anniversary prizes.
Sign up at any library branch. Just let the clerk know you want to join to get your starter kit and first log. Or, sign up online!
