1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Sign up anytime in the Children's Room at the MAIN LIBRARY or CRENSHAW  LIBRARY.

The "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" nationwide program challenges parents and caregivers to read to their newborn, infant, toddler, and/or preschool child.  The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten.  This program helps parents and caregivers give their young children the early literacy skills and the confidence necessary to become strong readers and be successful in school and life.

Parents and caregivers keep track of the books that they read to their children. The Inglewood Library provides all the program materials needed: log sheets, milestone markers, and certification of completion, plus a small incentive for every 100 books read.   Parents and caregivers can also download the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone and Android App to track their reading.

Visit their official website, 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten,  for instructions to download the App and extra log sheets.
