1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The Lackawanna County Library System presents 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.

What is 1000 Books Before Kindergarten?
1000 Books Before Kindergarten prepares your child for Kindergarten by promoting early literacy skills through reading.

Reaching 1000 books isn’t as hard as you think.
• By reading 3 books a day, you will reach 1095 books in one year.
• By reading 10 books a week for 2 years, you will reach 1040 books. That’s less than 2 books a day!

Program Overview

Goal: Help kids enter school ready to learn.

Who can participate?
Any child from birth until child enters Kindergarten.

How the Program Works:
